The Portland City Council voted unanimously Wednesday for Commissioner Amanda Fritz’s plan to extend the protections against religious discrimination in the city’s civil rights code to people who do not believe in a god or gods.

Thirty-one percent of Oregonians identify as religiously unaffiliated, according to the Pew Research Center.

“The proposed changes to our civil rights code may seem like a minor tweak, but they are significant for the many many Portlanders who identify as non-religious,” Fritz said.
