Ordinance No. 2237 – 2012
Adopted: February 15, 2012
Local advocates in Cheltenaham began working on the ordinance during the summer of 2010 after attending several meetings with Suburban Equality. Advocates broached the ordinance with township commissioners in 2011 with significant support. The nondiscrimination ordinance was unanimously adopted in February 2012 with a XXX vote in favor.
Cheltenham Area Residents for Equality (CARE) was formed by local advocates to lead the community efforts in favor of the ordinance. The CARE Facebook page can be visited here.
