Meridian Township Adopts Inclusive Policies

By |2013-07-18T09:00:00-04:00July 18th, 2013|Michigan, News|

On July 10 the Meridian Township Board of Trustees voted unanimously to amend their internal policies to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
They also unanimously resolved to amend their human rights ordinance to prohibit discrimination in housing and public accommodations. There are at least 22 municipalities in Michigan that have inclusive local human rights ordinances. The State of Michigan does not include protections for LGBT people in the statewide civil rights laws. The ordinance is expected to be adopted in August.
The One Capital Region team was organized earlier this year to encourage other Lansing-area cities and townships to adopt inclusive ordinances. To learn more visit http://onecapregionblog.wordpress.com.
