LQBTQX JUSTICE

The Issue:

Michigan is home to over 311,000 LGBT adults and 61,000 LGBT youth. LGBT people in Michigan lack important legal protections that have been extended in other states. For example, statewide statutes in Michigan do not explicitly prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity in areas such as employment, housing, and public accommodations.

State laws in Michigan also fail to adequately protect LGBT students from bullying and harassment. In terms of social climate, Michigan ranks 20th in the nation on public support for LGBT rights and acceptance of LGBT people.

Shri’s Solution:

Mandate fundamental protections for our LGBTQX residents and explicitly make discrimination based on sexual or gender identity illegal in Michigan under Elliott Larsen Civil Rights Act.
