Michigan Project for Informed Public Policy receives grant | BTL MI

MICHIGAN: Good News for LGBT Progress!:
"The Michigan Project for Informed Public Policy announced on Oct. 16 that it has received an $85,000 grant from the Arcus Foundation. The grant will be used to continue MPIPP's work to improve equality for Michigan's LGBT citizens. MPIPP started its work in 2008 and has developed a network of over 100 mental health providers and social scientists. The project has provided educational testimony to the Michigan legislature on legislation affecting the LGBT community and in Kalamazoo regarding the local anti-discrimination ordinance."

I am excited that other Progressive organizations are getting in on helping out with LGBT liberation. Our allies are keys to our winning. Especially in Michigan, whose LGBT groups have some of the biggest hills to climb to get to Equality after the horrible anti LGBT-laws that have been passed there recently.
