This Tuesday

It has never been more exciting to be a part of the marriage movement in Michigan.

At any moment, we could receive a ruling from the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals on Michigan’s marriage ban. And following this week’s announcement from the U.S. Supreme Court that paved the way for marriage in six states—we know Michigan needs marriage now more than ever.

With all these recent developments, we know you may have a lot of questions. So on Tuesday, October 14th at 7PM in East Lansing, we’re hosting a community meeting to discuss the status of Michigan’s marriage case and what you can do to help win marriage in Michigan once and for all. Click here to RSVP.


If you’re wondering whether or not you should plan to come, let me tell you this: The next few weeks will absolutely determine how and when we win marriage equality in Michigan—and it’s up to our grassroots campaign, driven by supporters like you, to get the job done. So if you want to say you were a part of this historic movement, this is your chance—right now!

This is a free event, open to the public and will be a unique opportunity for our supporters to hear from legal experts and community leaders who have first hand knowledge of where Michigan's marriage case stands and what we can expect in the weeks and months ahead.

This event is co-sponsored by ACLU of Michigan-Lansing Branch, Equality Michigan, Michigan Pride, the Lansing Association for Human Rights, LAHR PAC, Cooley Law School ACLU Chapter, LGBT Resource Center of MSU, Suits and the City.

So come one, come all to our community meeting in East Lansing next Tuesday at 7PM. Click here to RSVP.

Hope to see you soon,

Regina Calcagno

Coalition Manager, Michigan for Marriage

Did you know?

LBGTQ (Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, Transgender, or Queer) youth comprise nearly 1 out of every 5 homeless youth, mostly because of family conflict. They are at a greater risk for victimization, unsafe sexual practices, and mental health issues. Homeless youth who identify as Transgender are 7 times more likely to experience acts of sexual violence than straight homeless youth. For more information about this crisis, and why resources like Gateway Community Services are invaluable, please follow these links:

The Forty-to-None Project portal provides resources and guides that identify reasons why LBGTQ youth become homeless, tells of the experience of living without family support, and gives solutions that keep LBGTQ youth safe and off the street. Their Informational Guides for Service Providers provides a curriculum, best practices, and a toolkit.
