The MEA Board of Directors has voted to support the “Fair and Equal Michigan” petition drive effort for a citizens initiative to include LGBTQ rights in state law. Under current law, you can still be fired from your job or kicked out of your house if your boss or landlord discovers you’re lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender in Michigan. Educators have not been immune from harassment and employment discrimination for simply being who they are.
The Fair and Equal effort has moved to a digital signature collection process due to COVID-19 – to sign the petition, visit www.fairandequalmichigan.com/sign. It will only take a few minutes to add your name to the growing list who want to ensure our state provides fairness and equality for all our citizens, no matter who they love.
