Geiss is an advocate for civil rights, human rights, and economic justice. As a state senator, Geiss will continue to work on issues that address economic, education, and health disparities for marginalized people in our state including our LGBTQ and immigrant community members. Geiss sponsored HB 4728, which creates a non-profit legal organization contract fund to assist people faced with the prospect of deportation. In 2016, Geiss voted against legislation that restricts the ability of LGBTQ citizens from adopting children out of foster care. As a member of the Michigan Legislative Black Caucus, Geiss has authored a visionary Racial Equity Score Card, which examines critical legislation through an equity lens.
