Policy & Advocacy

From discrimination & bullying, to connecting you to LGBTQ+ friendly healthcare providers, we are here to advocate for you! We also strive for equity by fighting for inclusive policies.

Advocacy Case Files

We can help you navigate issues involving:

Policy

Our Policy Squad consists of LGBTQ+ policy experts and other volunteer activists throughout the state who take the lead on voter education and LGBTQ+ legislative issues at the local, state and federal level.  

We also represent the needs of the LGBTQ+ community on several alliances, committees & councils.

 

Additionally, we work with churches/religious organizations and government institutions (including schools) to help navigate LGBTQ issues and implement inclusive policies.

Name Change Guide

Check Out Our Name Change Guide for information on navigating the name-change process in Michigan. 

After you've read the guide, you can find many of the court forms and other relevant links here.

For many, changing their name is an important part of the gender affirmation process, which can also help lower suicide attempts. Additionally, changing a person's name to closer match their gender identity can reduce unintentional outing, reduce the risk of bullying and discrimination and more.
