Michigan Aerospace Corporation is proud to express its strong support for the expansion of Michigan’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act to include protections for sexual orientation and gender identity. The Act outlaws discrimination in employment, public accommodations, housing, real estate, education, and more. This is a significant step towards achieving equality and justice for all, and we commend our lawmakers for taking this important action.
The LGBTQ+ community has faced discrimination and marginalization for far too long. By passing this legislation, we are sending a clear message that discrimination and hate have no place in the State of Michigan. It is a fundamental human right to be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of one's sexual orientation or gender identity.
We applaud the lawmakers who have championed this legislation and the advocates who have worked tirelessly to make it a reality. It is a testament to the power of community organizing and advocacy, and it gives us hope for a more just and equitable future.
Let us continue to stand together in support of LGBTQ+ rights and work towards creating a society where everyone is valued and treated with respect.
