The Bristol: 100 Strong Against Discrimination

September 27th, 2007 · 1 Comment

While Louisville’s popular restaurant the Bristol celebrated its 30th Anniversary– nearly 100 people turned out to speak up against the Bristol’s blatant discrimination against Corey Nett. Please click here for the details of that discrimination.

This is democracy in action. When you allow an employee to engage in discrimination against a young man with Cerebral Palsy and never apologize, what happens? What happens when you attempt to sweep discrimination under the rug?

Citizens exercise their rights and stand up for what they believe. In this case citizens stood up with compassion for the Americans with Disabilities Act and in support of all that’s right with the United States.

We stopped by the peaceful demonstration this evening to snap some photos. Click here to view them.

Press showed up:


Here’s what WHAS11 had to say:

Thank you to Louisville’s media – both WHAS11 and WDRB/Fox 41 for giving this matter the attention it deserves. And the Courier-Journal for sending a photographer who gleefully photographed everyone who entered the restaurant.

Kudos to all who showed up to support Corey and for doing so with love and appreciation. Those of us against the war could have learned a thing or two tonight.
