Bring a lunch and learn how he uses concepts such as “organizing is about relationships,” “focus on action,” and “meet people where they are” to build movements for social transformation.

Guest Speaker - Mark Brewer

In 2012, Michigan Democrats cast 51% of their votes in Congressional races for Democratic candidates, but won only 36% of the seats. In 2016, 47% of the votes cast for Congress were for Democrats, but they again won only 36% of the seats. According to Mr Brewer and others, that's due to something called the "efficiency gap."
