Adopted: May 28, 2013
Pittston became the 31st municipality in Pennsylvania to adopt a non-discrimination ordinance. The small city of about 8,000 is the first in Luzerne County and second in northeastern Pennsylvania to adopt this type of local law. Over two dozen community supporters of the ordinance attended the final vote. The driving force for this ordinance was through leadership of the NEPA Rainbow Alliance who worked for several months with the fully supportive City Council. The vote was unanimous.
