As part of Zonta’s initiative to End Child Marriage, and in partnership with Unchained At Last,  District 15 is supporting Mich House Bills 4003-4005, stuck in committee for over 1 1/2 years.  The bill protects our young girls by ending child marriage with no exceptions.  Tell yourself you are not responsible, watch this video and join with us to lend your support for this legislation.

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.
