    Scope and Content of Collection

    This collection contains materials related to the battle over a 1986 civil rights ordinance in Davis, California that protected LGBT people from discrimination. At the time, it was one of the most sweeping anti-discrimination laws in the country. The collection includes materials from the First Amendment Coalition (FAC), which tried to eliminate the provisions that protected homosexuals from discrimination, and materials from Citizens for Fairness for Lesbians and Gays (CFLAG), which fought to uphold them. There are also news clippings; essays and letters to the editor in favor of the ordinance from Jeffrey Ruda, a UC-Davis Art History Professor; and LGBT ephemera from UC-Davis and Sacramento.
