Earlier this month, the Bloomington City Council added Veteran Status and Housing Status to the list of protected classes in the Bloomington Human Rights Ordinance. The recommendation to do so came from the city’s Human Rights Commission. At the meeting, the Chair of the Commission, Byron Bangert, and its Director, Barbara McKinney, spoke on this recommendation. WFHB Assistant News Director, David Murphy, spoke to both Bangert and McKinney about these additions to the code and also about the role of the Commission in enforcing the Code’s regulations. We bring you that conversation for today’s WFHB community report.
