Coronavirus Updates

As COVID-19 sweeps the world, every community has been affected. The LGBTQ community, Black communities, and other communities of color have faced heightened challenges due to our economic and health care disparities. 

HRC in Michigan is dedicated to informing, advocating and serving these communities during this time of crisis by providing news and resources around the coronavirus pandemic. You can help by getting involved virtually and inviting your friends and family to take action with us. 

Recently, Governor Whitmer signed an executive order protecting LGBTQ people from health care discrimination during this crisis. See the statement.

Census 2020

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
