This Wednesday, October 11, the UM College Republicans and American Enterprise Institute are sponsoring a white supremacist, Charles Murray to speak on campus. Murray co-wrote the racist book, The Bell Curve which marked the re-emergence in the 1990s of racist eugenics, biological determinist theories using pseudo-science, linking IQ to race and claiming white intellectual superiority. He is an Alt-Right bigot who is emboldened by Trump and is coming to promote his new book.

Michigan vs Michigan State: Petition for Earned Paid Sick Time!

Date: 
Sat, Oct 7, 2017 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm

City:

Why should the workers of Michigan have to choose between our health and our family's economic security? Over 1 million people in Michigan do not receive paid sick time. This potential ballot proposal would require each worker to receive 1 hour paid sick time in return for 30 hours worked. That's the least we can do in working toward economic justice in our state.
