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.

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:


In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?
