Petition takes aim at LGBT discrimination

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, MI (WNEM) -

Supporters of a new petition said it will prevent discrimination based on sex, orientation or gender identity.

Spokeswoman for Fair Michigan, Sara Wurfel said it's the right time for the measure.

"The end game is to make sure we're doing everything we can to prevent discrimination in the state of Michigan, I think the time is right, the moment is right and I think there's pretty much universal agreement that it's time that everybody should be treated fairly," Wurfel said.

If 315,000 signatures can be collected by July, the measure can appear on the ballot next November.
