Event Description:
The DEI Committee is hosting a viewing and discussion of the Ordinance Project at UMKC.

The Ordinance Project tells the story of the contentious struggle to pass an ordinance in Kansas City, Missouri prohibiting discrimination in housing, employment, and public accommodations based upon sexual orientation and HIV status. Emerging from the local chapter of the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power, activists struggled for nearly four years (1989-1993) to secure passage of the ordinance. Directed by UMKC doctoral candidate Austin R. Williams, the 90-minute film won the Celebration of Courage Award at the 2018 Kansas City LGBT Film Festival, and the Juror’s Choice Award at the 2019 Kansas International Film Festival.
