Action at MI State Capitol in Lansing to protest

State Sen. Lisa brown was banned from State house floor for saying vagina. MI has a reactionary legislature. Take Action.


On June 18, 2012, a cultural/political protest took place on the Michigan State Capitol Steps in Lansing featuring Eve Ensler, Michigan Senators and Representatives, local activists, and actors. The event was part of an organized response to the June 14th banning of Michigan State Rep. Lisa Brown from publicly speaking in the House. Rep. Brown was banned by House Speaker Jase Bolger and House Republicans for using the word “vagina” during a debate on a bill that puts new restrictions on abortion providers.
