It’s an issue that was shot down by City Council last march, adding non-discrimination ordinances to the City of Charlotte.
Now, newly elected Mayor Jennifer Roberts is hoping council will reconsider the changes.
On Monday, people for and against the idea united in a public forum to discuss the ordinance.
This ordinance would aim to protect sexual orientation, gender expression and gender identity.
Meaning businesses, hotels and other public entities in Charlotte can’t discriminate against any group of people.
The forum was intended to be educational, informative and allow Charlotte citizens to talk freely to one another about what's at stake.
Charlotte City Council will discuss the ordinance again on February 8.
