Due to low registration, the Murray Human Rights Commission has postponed a business and community training session geared toward a proposed human rights ordinance revision.

The meeting was scheduled for Wednesday and was to be free and open to anyone interested in learning about the updated ordinance. An attorney that has worked with the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights was going to be on hand to answer questions about discrimination investigations.

A training session for members of the Murray Human Rights Commission proceeded as planned. No date was given for a rescheduled community session.

According to the HRC, Murray’s human rights ordinance has not been significantly revised since 1970. HRC chair Jody Cofer Randall said the new ordinance is still being workshopped, with an eye on presenting it to the city council by the end of summer.
