Crain's Names Dievendorf Person To Watch in 2014

DETROIT - Crain's Detroit Business, the prominent weekly business newspaper, named Equality Michigan's Emily Dievendorf to their list of ten people to watch in state politics in 2014.
"I'm very honored to be on this list and in some amazing company!" said Dievendorf. "I am proud of what I am able to bring to the table. But my inclusion is most indicative of the strength and quality of the Equality Michigan team, our ongoing efforts, and the incredible work we are privileged to do with our impressive partners in the movement here in Michigan and at the national level. Bring on 2014!"
Dievendorf has been the most visible lobbyist for LGBT issues in Lansing since joining Equality Michigan in 2010 as the policy director, and then assuming the role of managing director in early 2013. A graduate of the James Madison College at Michigan State University, she had worked in the Michigan House of Representatives for state legislators Alexander C. Lipsey (D- Kalamazoo) and Andy Coulouris (D-Saginaw). Dievendorf served as chief of staff to Rep. Coulouris, the chair of the House Committee on Banking and Financial Services.
Crain's list of ten people to watch in state politics includes six women and four men, and at least three other strong LGBT allies; Sen. Rebecca Warren (D-Ann Arbor), former state lawmaker Barb Byrum and Lon Johnson, chair of the Michigan Democratic Party.
