On Thursday, May 28th councilmembers voted five to two to transfer the power of who gets to decide what flags fly outside of City Hall. Dyer openly opposed a resolution passed by the Fresno City Council that would allow local organizations to fly flags at Fresno City Hall.

The LGBTQ+ flag was set to fly over Fresno's City hall during a ceremony on June 11th at 10am.

Today, Dyer announced a proposal for a designated free-speech area in downtown Fresno instead of the Flag Raising Resolution passed by the city council, last week.

Instead of flying a flag outside of City Hall, Dyer suggested seven flag poles be installed at Eaton Plaza near Mariposa and N Streets. Dyer said he will allow all flags, including religious flags, to be raised. 

Write the Mayor and City Council members! Thank those who stood with us.  But, encourage those who didn't, to be on the right side of history.

Tell them our community deserves to be treated equally.
