Progress Michigan Statement on ELCRA Ruling by MI Supreme Court

MICHIGAN — Progress Michigan released the following statement regarding the 5-2 decision by the Michigan Supreme Court ruling that the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

“This is a great victory for the LGBTQ community and everyone in Michigan. Our state should be a welcoming, inclusive, and affirming place for everyone and today marks a major step forward in making that future a reality,” said Sam Inglot, deputy director of Progress Michigan. “This victory belongs to the organizers, activists and community members of the LGBTQ community who never stopped fighting for their rights and the tireless work of Attorney General Dana Nessel. We’re so thankful for their tenacity and heart in achieving this victory and we’re proud to stand alongside them. This is a good day in Michigan and together we’re going to make sure there are many more to come.”
