LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Social justice activists are trying to force the hand of 4th Street Live! to change its dress code policy.
Dozens from the Kentucky ACLU and other groups rallied at the entrance of the downtown entertainment venue Monday morning, saying discrimination issues have not been fixed.
It comes as the Cordish Company, which operates the venue, battles a racial discrimination lawsuit. Critics say the dress code is racially biased, not consistently enforced and discriminates against people of color.
ACLU leaders say the company agreed to customer service changes in a closed door December meeting, but hasn't followed through.
The Cordish Company did not return our calls for comment.
