Our Freedoms - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE Our Freedoms HOME ISSUES OUR FREEDOMS We in Michigan once had some of the strongest civil rights protections in the country in the Elliot-Larsen Civil Rights Act, but we’ve fallen behind. We’ve got to show up for each other’s fights so that every Michigander, no matter where they come from, who they love, how they identify, or what their faith is, has the same opportunities to be successful and we cannot stop until they do. That means ensuring equity in employment, opportunity, schools, and safety for all people. We are still fighting for fundamental rights when people in our state can be denied housing or terminated from employment for their sexual orientation or gender identity. We will build justice in Michigan by: Expanding the Elliot-Larsen Civil Rights Act. Year after year, in the Senate and as a private citizen, I pushed to expand our civil rights laws to include all people regardless of  sexual orientation and gender identity. We drew the line when lawmakers tried to exclude transgender people from our civil rights laws. And I fought for same-sex adoptions and domestic partner benefits. Promoting universal voter access, because it is too hard to register and to vote in Michigan, and as a result, fewer people do it. Everyone who applies for a driver’s license or state ID should be automatically registered to vote, and any registered voters should be able to vote absentee or by mail. As a legislator, I fought to ensure valid ballots from our service members overseas were counted, to prevent voters from being turned away at the polls, and to allow same-day voter registration. Level the playing field in our criminal justice system so that the amount of money in your bank account does not determine the level of justice you receive. As Ingham County Prosecutor, I prioritized rehabilitation programs for nonviolent, first-time offenders to save resources, reduce overcrowding in prisons, and most importantly, to give people [DATE REMOVED] chance. Ban the box so that fair hiring practices prevent disparities in our criminal justice system from keeping people out of the labor pool. Ending this discriminatory practice will put thousands of women and men back into stable, good-paying jobs. Refuse to allow bullying on the grounds of religion. It’s a false choice to say that we can’t have religious freedom while still respecting one another. I’m proud of the work I did to protect our kids in schools with Matt’s Safe Schools law, but we have much more work to do. Making government smarter and more effective by empowering a diverse set of voices in the cabinet, appointments, and throughout state government. That means creating an Equity Officer in the Governor’s office and empowering the Department of Civil Rights and the Civil Rights Commission.

Garlin and Ellen are raising their family in his hometown of Detroit. Detroiter Garlin was born and spent the first part of his childhood in Detroit. When he was four years old, he started public speaking at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Detroit, before further honing his skills at the knee of Dr. Frederick G.

At age eight, Garlin’s parents moved their family to Farmington—he is a proud product of Detroit and Farmington public schools. Tech Guru Garlin’s grandma made him the first kid on his block to have a computer when he was five years old. He started his first job fixing and building computers at age 16. With the first five computers he built, he set up a computer lab in his community’s recreation center to introduce people to technology. Garlin studied computer engineering and computer science at the University of Michigan, where he graduated with honors in 2005. After graduating, Garlin spent four years as a software engineer at Microsoft in Seattle, where he helped build SharePoint into the fastest growing product in the company’s history. As Lieutenant Governor, Garlin is helping to move Michigan’s state government into the 21st century.

He spearheaded equity and justice campaigns, including fighting to expand Medicaid in states with Republican governors, like Michigan. Problem Solver In 2014, Garlin and Ellen chose to move home to Detroit and raise their children as Michiganders. Garlin started working for the City of Detroit as the first ever Director of Innovation & Emerging Technology, where he opened up the city’s public data and information and solved problems for Detroiters. Garlin created an app for Detroiters to report problems they were facing every day, like broken fire hydrants, potholes, and broken street lights. Public Servant Garlin has dedicated his career to fixing problems for hardworking families. He’s ready to use his experience as an organizer and an innovator to get things done for Michiganders across the state.As lieutenant governor, Garlin immediately rolled up his sleeves and got to work bringing our state government into the 21st century.
