Redistricting Reform in MI: Town Hall Meeting and Update!

Date: 
Sat, Apr 8, 2017 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

City:

The ICPJ is co-sponsoring a 30-min presentation by MI Fair Districts on gerrymandering itself and current events in combatting it in Michigan. The presentation will be followed by a robust Q&A.

When politicians choose their voters and not the other way around, citizens end up with government that no longer represents them nor has their best interests in mind.

Come learn what gerrymandering is, how it is playing out in MI and nationwide, and what you can do to support efforts to change it.

Attendance is Free!

Understanding Money: A Brief History of Money

Date: 
Mon, Apr 10, 2017 - 7:00pm to 10:00pm

City:

Understanding Money: a workshop series presented by Adam "Fuzzy" Konner and Common Good (formerly rCredits), Washtenaw County's alternative currency and payment system. Free and open to the public!

In the current political climate, resistance is abundant. But positive alternatives are rare, and more important than ever. Many people think of money as neutral—just a medium of exchange. However, our money system is built on debt, it deepens inequality, and it drives the destruction of the environment.
