Visit Fort Wayne is "Open for Business"

Mar 30, 2015

Fort Wayne’s convention and visitor’s bureau is making its position known on the  controversial “Religious Freedom Restoration Act.”

Visit Fort Wayne says it’s “Open for Business” and will continue to welcome all  visitors to the city. The organization says there have been inquiries by many of its convention clients  about its response to RFRA.

The law’s opponents say it will allow Hoosier businesses to discriminate against  LGBT people, while Governor Mike Pence says it has been mischaracterized.
