Tell Lenawee County Commissioners to End Discrimination Against Amish Residents

The American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan and the law firm Wright & Schulte, LLC are defending an Old Order Amish community and counter-sued the Lenawee County Health Department for violating the constitutional and civil rights of its residents.

Lenawee County officials have condemned the homes of this Amish community and are threatening to demolish every Amish-owned home in the county, unless the community abandons its religious beliefs which include abstaining from using electricity, hydraulic power, running water, and other modern technology. Effectively, the County would expel an entire faith community from its borders.

Tell Lenawee County Commissioners to stop this attack and discrimination against this Amish community.

Your Message

I urge you to stop discriminating against the Old Order Amish community in Lenawee County and drop your complaints and lawsuits against my neighbors.

The Lenawee County Commissioners should be taking steps to build trust and community in our neighborhoods, not alienating our neighbors for their religious beliefs that are not harming themselves or anyone else.

Sincerely,

[First Name] [Last Name]
