THIS RESOLUTION WILL BE VOTED ON
THIS TUESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 26.
This past January, the City of Milwaukee began exploring the possibility of gender-neutral or gender-inclusive restrooms in city buildings. In July, the Equal Rights Commission’s “Inclusive Restrooms Working Group” issued a report calling for, at a minimum, the City of Milwaukee to create gender-inclusive restrooms, locker rooms, and changing rooms in all buildings and properties owned by the City.
In early November, 3 Milwaukee alderpersons introduced a resolution calling for the City to create policies and procedures to implement “gender-inclusive” restrooms, locker rooms and changing rooms in all City buildings both present and in the future.
On November 13, the Public Works Committee held a public hearing on the resolution. Appearing in support of the resolution were 3 members of the Equal Rights Commission and a City employee who is transgendered from female to male. No one spoke against the resolution.
