We celebrate with the City of Covington, which scored 100 on the 2022 Municipal Equality Index released by the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest LGBTQ advocacy group. The City of Covington provides financial support to Aviatra Accelerators, enabling women entrepreneurs, the NKU Collaborative for Economic Engagement, a one-stop innovation hub for entrepreneurs and businesses, many of which are minority-owned, to accelerate economic growth in the area, and Renaissance Covington, focused on evolving the Covington community to create a business district rich with a bold entrepreneurial spirit, diversity, history, and creative culture.
We commend these Northern Kentucky cities – Covington, Dayton, Bellevue, Highland Heights, Fort Thomas, Cold Spring, Newport, Crescent Springs, Fort Mitchell and Elsmere – for passing fairness ordinances over the last two years banning LGBTQ discrimination in employment, housing, and public accommodations.
