No Hate in Hatboro
July 14, 2020
Just days after the new Hatboro township PRIDE flag was cut down and stolen, organizer Trish Marie Purdon brought the community together to show their support for the LGBT+ community during a rally/protest to send the message that there is no room for hate in Hatboro, PA. SAGA Community Center leaders were among the speakers at the event.
Hatboro extends discrimination protections to LGBTQ community

"The borough has joined a small but steadily growing list of municipalities across Pennsylvania that has done what the state government, so far, has been unable to do — extend discrimination protections to members of the LGBTQ community.
In a 4-3 vote Monday night, borough council approved an ordinance making it unlawful in Hatboro to discriminate against a person in matters of employment, housing, commercial property acquisition and public accommodations on the basis of that person’s sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression."
