Indianapolis City-County Councilman Zach Adamson To Gov. Pence: “Don’t Fail Us Again”

INDIANAPOLIS—Today, Indianapolis City-County Councillor Zach Adamson, the first openly gay county-wide elected official in Indiana, from the state’s most populous city called on Governor Mike Pence to extend full civil rights protections to all Hoosiers.

“Currently, Governor Pence is meeting behind closed doors with business leaders to try to move past the hateful RFRA law that has proven to be an international embarrassment for the Hoosier State. We are hearing reports that the Governor is hoping for a compromise that stops short of full civil rights protections for all. The only measure Hoosiers should accept is four words and a comma—full and total inclusion of LGBT Hoosiers in our state’s civil rights protections. As a member of the LGBT community, elected to serve the people of our state’s largest city and the economic engine of Indiana, I stand ready to urge Governor Pence directly, the LGBT community needs a voice at the table and we expect—and will accept—nothing less than adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the states civil rights code. Governor Pence, we are watching; all Hoosiers are watching. Don’t fail us again.”

Zach Adamson was elected as an At-Large City-County Councillor in 2011. He currently serves as a District Councillor on the near-Eastside of Indianapolis, where he lives with his spouse.
