Supporters and opponents gather to make final pitch of Equal Rights Ordinance

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- With just days to go before Election Day, supporters and opponents of Houston's Equal Rights Ordinance are making a final pitch to voters.

Several local business owners and civil rights leaders gathered in downtown Sunday to express their support. They say it makes Houston more attractive to investors by showing the city is inclusive to all.

"We're not taking anything for granted. It's going to be a close race, so we're encouraging everyone who's opposed to the bathroom ordinance to get out and vote on Election Day," co-chair Jared Woodfill said.

Opponents claim the ordinance would allow men to enter women's restrooms.

They say they're seeing large turnout in precincts that are opposed to the ordinance.
