Michigan Unity reports that last night the Royal Oak, Michigan, City Commission ensured that all residents will be treated fairly and equally by passing a human rights ordinance. The ordinance includes crucial protections for gay and transgender people.
“Unity Michigan applauds the Royal Oak City Commission for standing up for fairness,” said Jon Hoadley, Director of the Unity Michigan Coalition. “Royal Oak is the 22nd city in Michigan to pass an ordinance like this. We’re thrilled to see momentum growing across the state, and look ahead to a day where everyone in our state is treated fairly.”
