Eklund said, because he may appear
less charismatic than other appli-
cants and it could hurt his chances
Two years ago, Michigan became
the 10th state to ban discrimination
based on sexual orientation. Gov.
Jennifer Granholm signed Executive
Directive 2003-24 for nearly 55,000
state employees in Michigan's exec-
utive branch: This represents 95
percent of all state employees.
This directive, however, is easily
evaded. A company can cite any
reason for firing an employee, or
simply not tell him why, as in the
case of Porter's friend.
"My friend Thomas worked
at Mandalay Bay, but when his
employers found out that he was gay
and HIV positive, they fired him,
but refused to tell him why," Porter
"Most cases that I have dealt.
with were because the individual
was transgendered. I have talked
to many people who are concerned
with being out to their employer dur-
ing the interview and some who feel
they may have been discriminated
against because of their sexuality,"
Continued from page1A
the role MSF plays in intervention
and relief. Speakers will also take a
critical look at the consequences of
Fabrice Weissman, an MSF mem-
ber stationed in Paris who will be
speaking on armed interventions
and humanitarian projects, com-
mented on the crisis in Sudan.
"We have a huge operation in
Sudan right now, the biggest MSF
has ever run in its history. We are
taking care of about 700,000 dis-
placed persons," he said.
While MSF has provided care to
thousands of refugees, the medi-
cal intervention in the crisis has
encountered various political and
logistical problems due to lack
of resources and MSF's policy of
treating patients on both sides of the
"The role of MSF in such crises
is to provide vital assistance to the
population affected by the violence.
It's not to get involved in peace
building and conflict resolution. It's
a very limited role, to save people
who are facing desperation due to a
lack of elements necessary to sur-
vive," he said.
According to MSF policy, the
NGO strives to remain independent
of any religious or political affili-
ation, both in the field and in the
international community, taking
almost all of its funding from pri-
"Currently we are financed up to
85 percent by private funds which
means that we can act without being
influenced by the institutional
donors, such as the European Union
and various state members," said
But this independence is often
precarious, as the organization must
negotiate with militant groups to
gain access 'to populations in need
of emergency assistance.
Emmanuel Drouhin of MSF-
France will speak on this topic
today, discussing the difficulties in
obtaining access to a needy popu-
lation while still maintaining the
political independence of MSF.
Drouhin discussed a situation
in Southern Sudan in 1998 where
a different NGO had negotiated
the delivery of supplies to a needy
population with the militant group
controlling the area, agreeing to
distribute the food first to women,
children and the elderly.
When we (MSF) arrived, he said,
we found "most of the food was
diverted to the soldiers."
In situations such as these,
Weissman said, MSF plays a role
to publicize the circumstances they

English Prof. David Halperin,
who teaches a class on homosexu-
ality, said the University has been
understanding of the needs of the
LGBT community and maintains
fair policies in the hiring of its
workers. Among these is the Univer-
sity's continued offering of benefits
to employees in same-sex relation-
"I don't consider that I have suf-
fered personally from discrimina-
tion at the University of Michigan or
since coming to Ann Arbor. There
have been attempts to interfere with
my professional activities, such as
my teaching (in the case of a course
called "How to be Gay"), but those
have come from outside the Univer-
sity itself," Halperin said.
But he hopes that other compa-
nies follow in the same footsteps as
"Any time someone is refused
a job for reasons extrinsic to their
ability to perform, it an injustice has

ian society in which distinctions are

to pay lip service to that ideal and
then ignore it when it proves to be
inconvenient in some way?" Hal-
encounter, not necessarily to pro-
pose a solution, but to introduce
the problem to the international
He again cited the Sudan crisis,
saying that before the last couple
years, the international community
was mainly concerned with the civil
war between the north and the south,
and was ignorant to the tragedies
taking place in the west, in Darfur.
"There was absolutely no media
attention on Sudan ... nobody was
really concerned with what was
going on in the west, where the
war had claimed the lives of tens of
thousands of people.
At least a half million people were
displaced. At this time, Darfur was
not a part of the political debate,"
Because of MSF efforts in Sudan
to bring relief to victims of the civil
war, MSF was able to offer first
hand testimony about the situation
in Darfur, and met with the UN and
the international media to bring
attention to the massacres taking
"Our role is to inform the interna-
tional community of the situation,"
While today's lectures begin at
9 a.m. in the League, and continue
throughout the day, the conference
opened last night with a screening
of the MSF documentary, "These
Patents Make Me Sick! AIDS in
The screening was attended by
over 100 students and University
faculty, and afterwards featured a
discussion on what Ticktin called a
"non-traditional" function of MSF
- the treatment of AIDS in Africa
and the problems caused by inter-
national patent laws which severely
limit the availability of new, highly
effective AIDS medications.
In a discussion following the
screening, Weissman and a panel of
MSF members answered questions
about AIDS treatment and the regu-
lation of generic AIDS drugs.
"There are 4,000 patients and
we cannot afford much more," said
Weissman, commenting on the high
cost of brand-name drugs.
"On'all of the missions, we have
to decide how we will choose the
patients to put on the treatment.
That is a very difficult question ...
We don't have answers right now."
Panel members covered various
angles of the issue, addressing such
topics as distribution of second and
third line treatments after patients
develop resistance to the first treat-
ment drugs, treating refugee patients
and ensuring compliance with
treatment plans and governmental
cooperation with AIDS treatment
