Sonoma County Scores 100% for the 3rd year in a row on the Human Rights Campaign's Municipal Equality Index!

Human Rights Campaign Releases 2018 Municipal Equality Index Rating Cities on LGBTQ Inclusion

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation together serve as America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve LGBTQ equality. By inspiring and engaging individuals and communities, HRC strives to end discrimination against LGBTQ people and realize a world that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.

The Municipal Equality Index examines how inclusive municipal laws, policies, and services are of LGBTQ people who live and work there. Cities are rated based on non-discrimination laws, the municipality as an employer, municipal services, law enforcement and the city leadership's public position on equality.

The 2018 Municipal Equality Index  is the seventh annual edition and rates a total of 506 cities on 49 different criteria from every state in the nation.
