For years, there have been efforts to expand Michigan’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act protections to be inclusive of sexual orientation and gender identity and expression. Because face-to-face petition signing is not possible given the social distancing policies in place, the Fair & Equal Ballot Campaign is collecting signatures electronically. The Social Justice Coordinating Team and the Michigan UU Social Justice Network (MUUSJN) encourage you to sign the petition if you haven’t already done so. For further information, read the Bridge Magazine article, or contact Norma Bailey at email@example.com.
The Women’s and LGBTQ Justice Task Force of MUUSJN (Michigan UU Social Justice Network) is presenting a conference titled “Women’s and LGBTQ Justice” on June 29 at the Birmingham Unitarian Church. See more information.
