The Equality Michigan Pride Political Action Committee released its endorsements on Aug. 1 for the 2011 primary election for Lansing City Council: Rory Neuner, an at-large candidate, and Lynne Martinez for Ward 1.
“Michigan continues to struggle with a near-complete lack of protections for the gay and transgender community,” said Emily Dievendorf, political director of the Equality Michigan Pride PAC. “In Michigan, it is still legal to fire an employee because they are gay or even perceived to be gay. The candidates endorsed by the Equality Michigan Pride PAC for the primary elections are up-and-coming advocates for equality and fairness.
“Rory Neuner and Lynne Martinez are working hard to ensure that every citizen has equal access to local resources and opportunity … Lansing is key to our state’s well-being and these candidates know it. We applaud the tireless efforts and inspired vision that these candidates offer their friends, neighbors, and the entire state.”
The Equality Michigan Pride PAC works to support candidates committed to helping achieve full equality and respect for all people in Michigan, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
