The city of Jackson, Michigan may adopt an inclusive and equal non-discrimination ordinance to give LGBT people legal protection against discrimination. The Jackson City Commission voted to take up the issue last Tuesday, August 14 in spite of anti-LGBT efforts to block the vote. Many other cities in Michigan have already provided this protection, which would ban discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. According to a recent poll, 73 percent of likely voters favor protections against discrimination for LGBT people, while 80 percent believed these protections were already federally mandated.
