News: South Bend, Indiana ordinance set for hearing

A public hearing on the hotly debated and followed amendments to change the human rights ordinance of South Bend, Indiana, to include civil rights protection based on gender identity and sexual orientation is scheduled for July 10.

If passed, South Bend would join Bloomington, Indianapolis and Marion County in protecting transgender employees. To date, only one major Indiana-based employer, Cummins Inc., is listed by HRC as having gender identity protections.

Indiana is headquarters to 14 Fortune 500 companies, including Wellpoint, Eli Lilly, Cummins, NiSource, Conseco, Guidant, Zimmer Holdings, Simon Property Group, Brightpoint, Steel Dynamics, Vectren, Hillenbrand Industries, Biomet, and Marsh Supermarkets
