Gay and transgender political organizers throughout Michigan are gearing up for November’s election by offering financial support to pro-equality candidates. The Equality Michigan Pride Political Action Committee is looking for candidates to endorse and is asking Michigan voters to help out. Anyone can nominate a pro-equality candidate for consideration by the PAC. Once nominations are closed, qualified candidates will be advanced to a voting period. Supporters will then be able to vote for their top 10 candidates. The PAC will endorse and financially support the winning candidates.
“While radical policymakers continue to attack gay and transgender Michiganders, it’s crucial that we build power for candidates who will stand up for fairness and equality,” said Amy Hunter, Equality Michigan Pride PAC president. “Anti-gay activists are working as hard as they can to dismantle social and economic security for gay and transgender people and their families in our state. We need people to get involved and fight back. We need to show what Michiganders really value – fairness, equality, and inclusion.”
The public can nominate pro-equality candidates online at http://www.eqmipridepac.com. The deadline for nominations has been extended to Friday, Sept. 30.
Equality Michigan Pride PAC works to support candidates committed to helping Michigan achieve full equality and respect for all people regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. Find out more at http://www.eqmipridepac.com.
