Equality Michigan Virtual Office Hours
Equality Michigan’s Department of Victim Services is striving to continue to provide victim services to support our community while being cautious and adaptive during the COVID-19 pandemic. We recognize the LGBTQ population we serve is at high risk during these unprecedented times. Together we will find a way to get through and persevere ahead.
This means EQMI is temporarily changing how we provide our services. Our facilities, including all pop-up offices, are closed until April 15, 2020. We are following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) in our efforts to reduce exposure to COVID-19.
To continue to provide you with important services, Equality Michigan is offering virtual office hours Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays starting March 23.
