Grand Forks advances discrimination safeguards

All eyes are on Grand Forks as it mulls becoming the first city in North Dakota to ban employment discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

City Council member Bret Weber, who is in favor of the ban, said cities such as Fargo, Grafton and Mandan are waiting to see the outcome of the proposed amendment to city law defining classes protected from discrimination.

If Grand Forks passes the amendment it will likely be the start of a statewide trend, according to Weber.
