Civil Rights Expansion Package

In the last two weeks of June, Michigan State Representatives led by State Representative Abdullah Hammoud have introduced the MI Civil Rights Expansion bill package.  The sponsors noted that the bills are designed to, “extend necessary civil rights protections to all residents, regardless of birthplace.”

The bills are briefly summarized below.  MIRC supports these bills because the bills promote the full participation of Michigan's immigrant communities in the economic, social, and cultural life of our state.
