Join HRC in Michigan
Human Rights Campaign fights for LGBTQ equality in Michigan alongside state and local groups and lawmakers. Join our team in Michigan as we work to defend the rights of LGBTQ people, immigrants, women, people of color and more.
In Mini Tuesday's Primaries on March 10, NBC Out reported record turnout of LGBTQ voters. It's clear that we are making the difference in this election. As we gear up for Michigan's statewide primaries, below are three things you can do to prepare yourself before heading to the polls:
- Triple the vote: Share essential voting information with three people such as a family member, coworker or a friend at hrc.org/Vote2020
- Register to vote: Visit HRC's Vote Center to make sure you're registered to vote and find essential voting deadlines.
- Phone bank: Join our team in Michigan in remote or virtual events. Find one near you.
As we celebrate International Transgender Day of Visibility, we must never forget those who still feel invisible even in their own communities and who may live every day with fear of discrimination or violence, and we must resolve to fight for a world where every transgender and non-binary person is respected and protected. The transgender and non-binary community’s pride, power and resilience should be a lesson to us all.
April 1 is Census Day and taking it is how we can take action and ensure lawmakers see us and equally represent us. Unfortunately, the Census may miss or undercount thousands of people across many marginalized backgrounds such as being LGBTQ unless we organize to make sure everyone is counted in this process. Pledge to take the Census.
