Wayne-Washtenaw Regional Transit Strategy Meeting

Date: 
Tue, May 1, 2018 - 2:15pm

City:

While the Motor City Freedom Riders and other transit advocates will continue to fight for a four-county RTA measure, we must also ensure that we have a plan B. Oakland and Macomb county leadership are showing no signs of allowing the people of our region to vote on transit this year, and we cannot afford to wait until 2020 or 2022 for any transit progress. The time has come for Wayne and Washtenaw Counties to set out together, to prepare a two-county regional transit plan for the voters on this November's ballot.

Postcards & Pizza Party

Date: 
Mon, May 7, 2018 - 5:30pm to 8:30pm

City:

On Monday, May 7, we’re gathering to write postcards to our elected officials, socialize, and network. New format for this party: a speed-dating concept where letter writers gather at tables to hear expert-activists talk for a few minutes on different topics, you write your postcards, and the activists move from table to table. We’ll be writing on 4-6 issues, including gun control, the Enbridge Line 5, and the proposed DTE gas plant. Also new: a phone-calling room. We’ll give you phone numbers to call your reps. It may be after office hours, but you can leave a message.
