LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB Fox 41) -- The Fairness Coalition says a survey reveals 83 percent of Kentuckians support statewide fairness protections. That's a nearly twenty point gain in support since 2004.
The coalition on Monday released the results of a statewide survey of 600 registered voters.
Chris Hartman, the Director of the Fairness Campaign, told Fox 41 News, "83% of Kentucky believe that their citizens should all have a fair chance to earn a living, to have a roof over their head, and to visit their favorite restaurants or other public accommodations without the fear of being discriminated against on the basis of simply who they are."
The Coalition is also launching an advertising campaign bringing to light job discrimination and the necessity of having hospital visitation rights.
