                     GOVERNOR SNYDER SIGNS LAME DUCK BILLS

                  TO GUT MINIMUM WAGE & SICK LEAVE LAWS





MUUSJN Is sad and angry that on December 14th, Governor Rick Snyder signed two bills that would gut the One Fair Wage and Earned Paid Sick Time laws that we worked hard to get on the 2018 ballot. Legislators passed these bills so they could keep our citizens initiative economic justice reforms off the ballot and then gutted them during the lame duck session in December 2018.  But our work is not done!  This bait and switch strategy violates the Michigan Constitution.  Stay tuned for more news.   Click HERE for news about the Governor's signatures.

        New Women's & LGBTQ Justice Task Force       Sends Recommendations to Gov. Elect Whitmer





MUUSJN's new Women's and LGBTQ Justice Task Force, which includes representatives from over a dozen activist groups, in December 2018 submitted testimony on issues to Governor elect Gretchen Whitmer's transition team. These issues included: restoring family planning funding; repealing an old law that makes abortions illegal; supporting the Michigan Civil Rights Commission's interpretation of state law that supports LGBTQ civil rights; opposes shackling of women giving birth in prisons;  and opposing a 2015 law that allows adoption agencies to discriminate against placement with gay couples.  Click HERE to see more details of this testimony.  This project is supported by grants from the Unitarian Universalist Assocation and the Buck  Dinner.
