We have the opportunity to end child marriage in Michigan this summer.
But that can happen only if Rep. Graham Filler, the chair of the house judiciary committee, schedules a hearing immediately on a trio of pending bills that would eliminate all marriage before 18.
Child marriage can too easily be forced marriage, because children have limited legal rights. Further, marriage before 18 is a human rights abuse that produces devastating, lifelong repercussions.
Please take a minute right now to urge Filler to schedule the hearing and to pass the bills without any amendments. Just submit this pre-written email — and urge your friends to do the same. #18NoExceptions
Lets make Michigan the 5th state to pass legislation and end child marriage in Michigan.
