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 was held on Monday, January 11 from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm.
