Legislation was introduced on Monday that would form an Akron Civil Rights Commission to hear discrimination cases and to extend existing protections to the city’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.The commission would hear complaints brought by residents who believe they have been discriminated against because of their age, sex, race, color, creed, religion, national origin, military status, disability or marital status, as well as for gender identity and sexual orientation. A Special Committee of Council was formed to consider the legislation and make a recommendation to Council.
