District 15 members advocate ending child marriage at Michigan State Capitol

D15 Advocacy Day 1

On 4 December, members from Zonta International District 15 gathered at the Michigan State Capitol in Lansing for its first-ever advocacy day.

Zonta members met with representatives and staffers who did not know that minors can get married in Michigan. Rep. Kara Hope, a cosponsor of one of the bills to end child marriage, and Rep. Daire Rendon, who sits on the judiciary committee, came to the district’s legislative briefing.

District 15 Governor-Elect Deanna Cambridge joined Rep. Sarah Anthony at a press conference and Anthony welcomed Zontians to the House gallery during the legislative session.
