Take Action for LGBTQ Inclusion & Equality on Sept 28 in Lansing

The National LGBTQ Task Force is proud to partner with Inclusive Justice and Equality Michigan’s public education campaign on LGBTQ rights, Thursday, September 28, and we need people of faith to attend! Anyone can participate, including those who have never met with their legislators. Here’s what you’ll receive:

  • Learn to tell your story and gather stories from Michigan lawmakers.
  • Understand how Michigan policy decisions affect LGBTQ people.
  • Gain skills to build lasting relationships with your legislators.

It is critical that Michigan elected officials hear from Michiganders like you about why protecting people from discrimination and prejudice is crucial. Just a few weeks ago leaders of the Jackson, Michigan LGBT Pride Center lost their home and pets to a hateful act of arson. And every day, LGBTQ people face discrimination in healthcare, employment, education, public accommodations, and more.

REGISTER HERE (no cost to you)

The day will begin at 8:30am on September 28 at the Central United Methodist Church at 215 North Capitol Avenue, Lansing, Michigan 48933, right across from the capitol building. You’ll get training, lunch and be part of a group to talk with your legislator.

Please register today and we will contact you with more details.

Statement on Transgender military service

Inclusive Justice is dismayed at the sudden announcement that Transgender individuals will not be able to openly serve in the military.  This announcement seems arbitrary and lacks any scientific or spiritual justification. 

Inclusive Justice fully supports the open service of Transgender individuals in the military.  We believe that all people are made in the image of God and deserve respect and equal treatment under the law.

MCRC Seeks Public Comment

At the July 24th meeting of the Michigan Civil Rights Commission, Equality Michigan (EQMI) asked the Michigan Civil Rights Commission (MCRC) to issue an interpretive statement to clarify that the prohibition against sex discrimination in the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act (ELCRA) includes protection against discrimination on the basis of gender identity and sexual orientation.

In order to ensure that it is considering all points of view, the Michigan Department of Civil Rights is soliciting public input on the EQMI request. Beginning at 12:00 pm noon on Tuesday, July 25, 2017 through COB on Tuesday, August 15, 2017, the Department will accept public comments on the EQMI request at MCRC-Comments@michigan.gov.

If you wish to submit public comment in the form of a video in American Sign Language, please upload the video to a web-based video hosting site such as YouTube and send the URL to the video to MCRC-Comments@michigan.gov.

The Commission will address the request at their Sept. 18th meeting in Lansing, Michigan.
