Equality Michigan Action Network (EQMI Action) serves as Michigan’s premiere statewide political advocacy organization. We are made up of passionate individuals who invest their time and talents championing the rights of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBTQ+) community. We work proactively to address the needs of our community through policy advocacy, building political power, community empowerment, and education. Our elected officials take the needs and concerns of their constituents to Lansing with them, so it is our duty to make sure those we endorse will support equal rights and legal protections for LGBTQ+ Michiganders and who are committed to the advancement of these goals in their capacity of elected officials.
We endorse candidates that support protections and rights for individuals regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. EQMI Action is here to organize for the political interests of LGBTQ+ individuals and allies, and elect leaders who share our values. We invite candidates who share our values to join our efforts and apply for recognition as a Pro Equality Champion. EQMI Action uses this questionnaire to determine who to recognize in the primary and general elections. For incumbent or former members running for an elected office, we will also review voting records. Our endorsement list will be available on our website at equalitymiaction.org and shared publicly.
