Leaders Gather, Discuss Laws to Protect Against Discrimination


LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Leaders from across mid-Michgan gathered at the capitol Wednesday to call for more protections for all residents, including gay and trans-gendered people.

Leaders from Delta, Delhi and Meridian Townships came to call for more local ordinances to protect against discrimination. They say that right now, more than 20 cities in Michigan have these kinds of ordinances and that most Michigan residents support these kinds of protections.

Organizers say that East Lansing has the country's oldest non discrimination law, which dates back more than 40 years.
