Kalamazoo Non-Discrimination Ordinance in Jeopardy
July 22, 2009
Last month, city commissioners in Kalamazoo, Michigan voted unanimously to join 15 other municipalities in the state in banning discrimination in employment and housing on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. Unfortunately, opponents of equality are working right now to put the issue on the November ballot and keep it legal to fire someone or deny them housing just because they are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. Kalamazoo Alliance for Equality (KAFE) is working hard to protect the city’s anti-discrimination ordinance. Please add your name to their statement of support before July 29. Then forward this message to your family, friends and contacts in Kalamazoo. Help us show that Michiganders want to live in an inclusive and welcoming state and that Kalamazoo should welcome everyone who wants to do an honest day’s labor, treat others with respect, and live in a safe community.
