Our Guide to Your City Council

Where Change Happens

In 2022, eleven Arizona cities have non-discrimination ordinances inclusive of LGBTQ+ identities — Chandler, Flagstaff, Glendale, Mesa, Phoenix, Scottsdale, Sedona, Tempe, Tolleson, Tucson, and Winslow. In many of these cities, those protections were won only recently. Without fully inclusive federal or state civil rights protections, Arizona communities rely on municipal ordinances, which currently cover only around half the population of the state. While other governing bodies get more attention, cities are where much of the policy that affects your daily life is decided or implemented. Looking to make a better world for your LGBTQ+ neighbors? There's no better place to start.
