Human Rights Campaign Celebrates Passage of Key Proposals, Securing Michiganders’ Right to Abortion and Expanded Voting Rights

by HRC Staff

Lansing, Michigan — Today, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) – America’s largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for LGBTQ+ people - commends Michigan voters for passing Proposals 2 and 3, which enshrine multiple voting rights and the right to abortion, respectively.

Human Rights Campaign Michigan State Director Amritha Venkataraman released the following statement:

“Here at the Human Rights Campaign we know that equal protection under the law will not be a reality until we live in a free democracy that guarantees human rights for all people, within and outside of the LGBTQ+ community. Michiganders took a step forward by making it easier to vote, not harder. And we stand with Michiganders for ensuring abortion access is protected in our state. The passage of Proposals 2 and 3 show us that Michigan is a state that cannot be held back - we will always fight for progress and equality. It’s time to celebrate.”

HRC’s Commitment to Michigan

HRC worked this year to engage our volunteers, members and supporters to mobilize the 1.1 million Equality Voters in Michigan in support of pro-equality candidates and ballot measures up and down the ballot. Equality Voters are a voting bloc of demographically and geographically diverse Americans who are united by the advancement of LGBTQ+ equality. Equality Voters are younger, more racially diverse, and more female than the general electorate, they recognize and trust the HRC brand, and they are more likely to identify with issue-specific organizations than candidates or political parties.
