Support Non-Discrimination Ordinance in Holland, Michigan

    1. Petition by

      Holland is Ready Holland, Michigan

      Holland, MI

The Human Relations Commission of Holland, Michigan has unanimously recommended that Holland's City Council amend its Fair Housing Ordinance and Equal Employment Opportunity Policy to include "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" in its list of protected classes.  Council is likely to vote within the next few weeks on whether or not to move forward with these inclusions.

Now is the time for everyone who cares about non-discrimination to help by signing this electronic petition.  Holland has an amazing opportunity to take steps toward true equality and fairness for all of its citizens and you do not need to be a resident of Holland to sign on!   Anyone can help Holland City Council members understand that there is HUGE support for this inclusive change. 

 Sign on now!

      As a Hope College graduate I believe it is past time for Holland to fully support nondiscrimination!

      Holland is a city near and dear to me. I grew up in Grand Haven. I would spend my summers hanging out with friends at hope college and seeing the sites. I'm Dutch and loved Tulip Time. Can Holland be like the real Holland now? Learn from our ancestors they agree with equality and you should vote to do the same. Not just for rights but for the economy!

      I shop in Holland as well as recommend Holland as a tourist destination, especially Springtime, before Tulip Time.

      I lived in Holland for 7 years, from 1992 to 1999 and still have many deep and lasting friendships with community members there. I have a profound love for Holland, MI that still resides in my heart. I am looking forward to the passing of this ordinance!

      Tabor Rinks, born and raised in Holland MI. The idea that someone might be turned down for a job because their sexual orientation, or gender identity is beyond absurd. Ignorance is not bliss. Love is bliss. :)
