LANSING, Mich. — A coalition of business and civil rights leaders is expanding an effort to lobby Michigan‘s Legislature to make it illegal to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
Advocates are hoping that by year’s end, the Republican-led Legislature will update the state’s civil rights law to include protections LGBT residents. They say discrimination is wrong and hurts Michigan’s ability to attract talent.
The Freedom Michigan campaign plans to deploy organizers to key districts to keep the pressure on legislators.
