Being Fair is a Smart Decision for Shreveport
Diversity and creativity work towards the benefit of the community. They establish a foundation in which a city can grow and develop economically, culturally, and socially. Having an awareness of differences and respecting them will bring a new found resilience to Shreveport as well as making it more competitive on the business front.
All hard-working people in our city should have the chance to earn a living and provide for themselves and their families. Nobody should have to live in fear that they can be fired for reasons that have nothing to do with their job performance.
Nor should our city risk losing Shreveport’s best and brightest to other cities that value creativity and diversity. The younger generations are drawn to cities like Austin, Atlanta, and Charlotte, which are dynamic centers of growth and possibility where creativity and diversity are encouraged. While it is always important to attract dynamic companies here, it is especially important today In order to keep our sons, daughters, family and friends here. By making Shreveport more inviting, we will also make it more prosperous.
