Michigan Department of Civil Rights, Jackson Human Relations Commission Co-hosting Public Forum

Contact: Regina Calcagno 517-241-4319

Lansing-On May 21, 2012, the Michigan Department of Civil Rights will co-host a public hearing on the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act (ELCRA) with the Jackson Human Relations Commission. This event will take place from 6-8 p.m. in Council Chambers on the second floor of Jackson City Hall, 161 West Michigan Avenue.

During this hearing, we will take public comment on the ELCRA and whether it should be expanded to include protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons. A number of guest speakers with expertise on the current nondiscrimination law and related issues will be present. The general public is encouraged to attend the forum, particularly those who wish to provide testimony on whether and how ELCRA's lack of protections for the LGBT population has affected them personally.

Both written and verbal testimony will be accepted. Please follow this link to learn more about telling your story.

To provide written testimony, please email it to calcagnor@michigan.gov before May 18, 2012. If you want to attend and need an accommodation to do so, please notify MDCR at calcagnor@michigan.gov .
