KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Kalamazoo Township Board of Trustees voted unanimously this week to update its equal employment opportunity policy to include the LBGT community.
The policy now adds that it will not discriminate against gender identity, sexual orientation, or genetic information.
Several communities in Michigan have similar non-discrimination ordinances, including Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids.
Board members will likely discuss if they are ready to take the next step: asking the Township Attorney to draft an ordinance--during a work session on May 13th.
