About Us

One Kalamazoo is the campaign formed to defend the Kalamazoo Non-Discrimination Ordinance.  As a ballot question committee, One Kalamazoo will encourage voters to support the ordinance during the November 3, 2009 elections.

One Kalamazoo is a strategic campaign driven by local volunteers and expertise.  Guided with aide from a Steering Committee of business and community leaders representing the diversity and values of Kalamazoo, One Kalamazoo represents the best of Kalamazoo’s values—hard work, equal treatment, fair play, and the recognition that discrimination is wrong.
