People from across the state will be able to speak with elected officials about the need to reform Michigan’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act on May 25 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church.
The Eliot-Larsen Civil Rights act protects certain classes of citizens from discriminatory practices in employment and housing. Sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression are not protected classes under the act. The classes that are protected under the act are: religion, race, ethnicity, color, sex, height, weight, marital status and familial status.
The Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion, the ACLU of Michigan and Equality Michigan are sponsoring the event.
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is located at 218 W. Ottawa St. in Lansing.
