HAVERHILL, Fla.—Following up on an LGBT-inclusive resolution supporting freedom from discrimination adopted last year by the Haverhill Town Council, the Town has updated its Equal Employment Opportunity and Anti-Harassment Policies to include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity or expression.”
The 2015 resolution and this year’s policy changes were requested by the Palm Beach County Human Rights Council, a local nonprofit organization which is dedicated to ending discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression. The organization is responsible for the enactment of more than 100 gay rights laws and policies in Palm Beach County.
Haverhill, one of Palm Beach Counties smallest municipalities, has less than 2,000 residents.
