Seventy-seven Jacksonville faith leaders have signed a letter in support of an inclusive human rights ordinance. If Jacksonville’s ordinance is expanded, the LGBT community would gain protections in housing and public accommodations.

The faith leaders declared their support for the protections at Friendship Fountain Thursday afternoon before a community discussion about the ordinance Thursday night.
