At the Leawood City Council meeting on August 13, 2019, the Leawood City Council voted unanimously to approve an expansion of the city’s ordinance to prohibit discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation.

Several Council members noted that this had been a priority of the Council set for the current year, but with the support and encouragement of Leawood resident Robert Groves, they chose to move forward with the changes at this time.
