Kalamazoo, MI Passes Gay Rights Ordinance

KalamazooThe city of Kalamazoo Township, Michigan recently added their LGBT community to their non-discrimination ordinance.

Monday night the Kalamazoo Township city counsel put this ordinance up to a vote. Unlike a few years ago where a similar ordinance to include LGBT citizens caused several months of controversy and had to be settled by a city-wide vote, this ordinance passed undisputed with a vote of 6-0.

This ordinance protects gays and lesbians from discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodation. Supervisor Ron Reid wants to go one step further and will bring back a resolution urging the state to expand the Elliott-Larson Civil Rights Act to also include the LGBT community.
