Town Hall Meeting


Guest Speaker: Emily Dievendorf, Policy Director for Equality Michigan


    Emily Dievendorf advocates for LGBT-friendly policies among legislators and other political leaders throughout the state.  Prior  to joining Equality Michigan Ms. Dievendorf worked in the Michigan House of Representatives for Democratic state legislators Alexander C. Lipsey of Kalamazoo and Andy Coulouris of Saginaw.  Ms. Dievendorf served as Chief of Staff to Representative Coulouris, Chair of the House Committee on Banking and Financial Services.


    Ms. Dlievendorf's passion for civil rights causes began in elementary school, where she advocated for racial justice to both referrals and detentions.  A natural advocate and policy wonk, she sees social justice as a way of life, rather than as work. She has long been active in social justice causes including LGBT equality, race relations, women's rights and HIV/AIDS.   


   Ms. Dievendorf currently serves on the Ingham County Women's Commission.  She is a graduate of the James Madison College at Michigan State University.
