RACINE — The City of Racine is among 120 cities nationally to achieve a perfect score in the annual Municipal Equality Index (MEI) released Wednesday by the Human Rights Campaign. This year's MEI rating marked the first time that Racine has received a perfect score of 100 and was a huge increase from the city's score of 41 points four years ago. The Washington D.C.-based Human Rights Campaign describes itself as the country's largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LBGTQ+) people.
