2023 Municipal Equality Index

We are proud to announce that Carlisle Borough has earned a 100 on the Human Rights Campaign's 2023 Municipal Equality Index! In 2022, we scored an 86. The Index examines how inclusive municipal laws, policies, and services are for LGBTQ+ people who live and work there.

Here are some factors that helped us improve our score in 2023:
  • Transgender-inclusive healthcare benefits
  • Adding non-discrimination language to all bid documents
  • Internal DEI training programs
  • Our support of organizations providing services to LQBTQ+ individuals, including youth and older adults.

Other Pennsylvania municipalities earning a score of 100 include Erie, Harrisburg, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and State College. View our scorecard.
