Advocating Justice for all in Michigan

Join the Coalition of Michigan Faith Leaders Speaking out Against Discrimination

As faith leaders, we believe we must do everything in our power to make sure that Michigan is a safe place to live, work, and raise a family for all people, including members of the LGBTQ community. That’s why we are calling on our elected leaders to pass comprehensive nondiscrimination protections, updating our state’s existing laws to protect LGBTQ Michiganders from discrimination in employment, housing, and public spaces.

The brave voices of progressive Catholics will be highlighted and affirmed during this virtual gathering space. DignityUSA, New Ways Ministry and Families with Dignity will share compelling stories of bravery in the face of harm and discrimination as they emphasize the importance of advocating for the LGBTQ community. Those open to learning more about the topic from a Catholic perspective are invited to participate in this space for healing, strengthening, and strategizing of Catholic voices on the topic of LGBTQ welcome and inclusion.

As you know, right now Michigan has no explicit nondiscrimination protections for the LGBTQ community in housing, health care or in public spaces at the state or federal level. In order to help right this wrong, Inclusive Justice will be hosting a training for all interested parties on how to build and sharpen your skills in engaging with our elected officials on advocating for nondiscrimination protections. This national training is entitled “Turning a Sermon into a Soundbite” and will be held on Monday, January 11 from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm. Registration for this training is now open and you can click here to reserve your place.

Thank you for your continued support and for your witness for justice in Michigan!

This summer, Stabenow met on Zoom with the heads of four LGBTQ+ centers in Michigan and Reverand Dr. Roland Stringfellow to discuss passage of the Equality Act. While a law like the Equality Act is DOA with Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump in power, it could become reality if Democrats win back the Senate and White House.

"You can count on me to keep pushing until we get this done," says the senator.
