LISTEN: First Radio Ad from Houston Unites Focuses HERO Fight on Religious Values

By Adam Polaski • August 28, 2015 • 11:51 am

This week, Houston Unites – the campaign to defend Houston’s Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO) – released its first radio ad. The spot, embedded below, features Rev. Dr. Will Reed, pastor at Servants of Christ United Methodist Church, supporting Proposition 1 – the equal rights ordinance on the November 3 ballot.

In the 60-second ad, Pastor Reed explains more about Houstonians’ privacy concerns and talks about the need for a local tool to protect all people in Houston from discrimination based on race, religion, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, veterans status, and more.

Listen to the ad:

Pastor Reed says in the ad:

“As Christians, my wife and I believe in treating others the way we want to be treated, that’s what we’ve taught our children. We’re hearing about HERO – Houston’s Equal Rights Ordinance, and concerns some have raised about privacy in public bathrooms. What’s being lost is that it’s already illegal to go into a bathroom to harm or harass someone. This law won’t change that.”

This week the Houston City Council approved final language for the city’s Equal Rights Ordinance on the November ballot.  A “yes” vote on Proposition 1 is a vote to keep HERO on the books.
