Kentucky Equality Federation - Discrimination, Hate Crimes, and School Bulling Committee Opinions:

Kentucky Equality Federation Arrow  As of January 2010, opinions of the Committee are published online for the general public with permission from the victim/complainant; should the victim/complainant not want the Committee's opinion published, it shall remain classifiedCurrently, Kentucky Equality Federation has 147 classified complaints (as of December 20, 2009). 

 

Kentucky Equality Federation Arrow  Regardless of the action the Committee does or does not take, publishing these complaints shall raise awareness of homophobia across the Commonwealth.  It is the hope of the Discrimination, Hate Crimes, and School Bulling Committee that publishing these complaints (with permission) will raise awareness of hate, discrimination, and bulling across Kentucky; until we stare it in the face and analyze our own prejudices, our Commonwealth shall never change.
