There are many states without explicit non-discrimination protections for the LGBTQ community with regard to housing, health care, and/or access to public spaces – at the state and/or federal levels.

In order to help right this wrong, The Center for LGBTQ and Gender Studies in Religion and Inclusive Justice of Michigan offer this training – with Rev. Dr. Roland Stringfellow – for all interested parties interesting in learning how to build and sharpen their skills in engaging with our elected officials on advocating for non-discrimination policies and protections.
