Statement on the Establishment of the Michigan LGBTQ+ Commission

Governor Whitmer signed an Executive Order on Sunday at Motor City Pride in Detroit establishing an LGBTQ+ Commission. This commission will advise the Executive Office & the Director of Labor & Economic Opportunity on issues involving health, safety, economic opportunity & talent retention for the LGBTQ+ community. Throughout 2023, we have seen the state take initiative on celebrating diversity, pass equitable laws & now has taken the additional step to work towards inclusion of the LGBTQ+ community. As an organization that focuses on DEI, we applaud this step. It fits directly into our vision of "a Michigan that uplifts the LGBTQ+ community through equity, understanding & opportunity."
