  • I’ve long been a supporter of my friends in the LGBTQ+ community, in fact, I served on the East Lansing Human Relations Commission for several years.  This Commission administers East Lansing’s Human Rights Ordinance (the first in the nation adopted by a city over 45 years ago).  I’m proud of the work we did to ensure equitable treatment in housing, opportunity, and civil rights not covered by state or federal law.

  • As your next state representative, I’m committed to:

  • Outlawing discrimination against LGBTQ+ individuals regarding adoption.

  • Banning harmful conversion therapy treatments for minors.
