Travis Park In Action For Justice

Congratulations to Travis Park UMC pastors and members as they spoke in favor of amending San Antonio’s non-discrimination ordinance to add protections for sexual orientation and gender identity.  Rev. Monte Marshall, Joseph Tanasi, and others spoke at the packed San Antonio City Council meeting in early September. The measure passed, and now San Antonio joins the list of other major Texas cities that have already approved similar amendments, including Houston, Dallas and Austin.

Mayor Julian Castro said the ordinance had significant support from all sectors of the city including government organizations and local businesses such as the San Antonio Spurs.   “This ordinance fundamentally is about ensuring whether white or black, Christian or Jew, whether straight or gay, San Antonio belongs to you.”
