GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Last month the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit against the City of Greensboro and 9 other entities over alleged discriminatory advertising.
The lawsuit claims an advertisement for the City of Greensboro's Police Department illegally targeted men over women. In an exhibit, the ACLU shows a copy of the advertisement on the city's Facebook page. The ad gives a job description, shows a picture of two male officers posing with police motorcycles and link to learn more. The targeting information listed below says "You're seeing this ad because City of Greensboro wants to reach men ages 25-35 who live or were recently near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania."
