Ambridge Center changes mind, will rent to PFLAG Black Chapter.

Ambridge Event Center, at 1333 NE MLK Boulevard, which recently refused to rent to Portland’s PFLAG Black Chapter because, well, bigotry (possibly connected to the Center’s ownership by a Catholic church), has changed its mind in the face of community pressure. The possibility that they were violating public accommodation laws probably had an impact, as well. Ambridge has issued an apology, and PFLAG Black Chapter will be holding its sixth anniversary celebration at the facility in April.
