Major Victory in Michigan!

Thank Governor Whitmer and the Michigan Legislature!

The Michigan House and Senate passed legislation to amend the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act to include explicit protections for sexual orientation and gender identity — and Governor Gretchen Whitmer has signed it into law!

The Human Rights Campaign and our partners have been working toward this moment for decades, and we would not be here without your support.

This legislation sends a clear message that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people belong in Michigan — and discrimination will not be tolerated. Modernizing ELCRA also helps to ensure Michigan’s position as a beacon of success and opportunity by attracting and welcoming necessary talent to its growing workforce.

Join the Human Rights Campaign in thanking the legislature and Governor Whitmer today.
