Creve Coeur passes anti-discrimination law

CREVE COEUR, Mo. (AP) — Discrimination because of gender identity and sexual orientation is now illegal in the St. Louis County town of Creve Coeur.

The town’s city council voted unanimously Monday to update a non-discrimination ordinance. The amendment prohibits discrimination in matters such as housing, employment and use of public spaces.

Five other St. Louis-area cities have passed similar measures. They are St. Louis, University City, Olivette, Richmond Heights and Clayton.
