As much as things are changing for the LGBT community, the fact remains that, in Michigan, you can literally be fired for being gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender. This fact keeps many people in the closet, ruining lives, even forcing some people to take their lives.

The Unity Michigan Coalition which includes the ACLU of Michigan, Affirmations, Equality Michigan, the Kalamazoo Gay Lesbian Resource Center, the Kalamazoo Gay Lesbian Resource Center, KICK, the Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion, and the Ruth Ellis Center, has a smart new campaign out called “Don’t Change Yourself, Change the Law”.

Here’s a terrific video they put out to encourage people to take steps to change the law:
