Fair and Equal Michigan submitted 483,461 signatures to the state on October 13, 2020 in its initiative to amend the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act. As the act currently prohibits discrimination based on race, religion, sex and other factors when it comes to employment, housing and public accommodations, the proposed amendment would add “gender identity” and “sexual orientation” to the list of protected classes.
