Wed, Oct 11, 2017 - 8:30am to 11:30am

City:

The next court date for Ypsilanti's Jose Valle Rodriguez is October 11, 2017 at 8:30 a.m.

Jose is a refugee from El Salvador who lives in Ypsilanti with his wife Karina and their 2-year-old son.

Jose came to the US from El Salvador--fleeing poverty and gang violence--when he was 17 and has been in the US for 14 years. He has no criminal record.

On the morning of Wednesday, May 24th--the same day that ICE raided Sava’s--Jose, Karina and their son left their house and an unmarked black SUV followed them.

Charter Schools and Public Education

Date: 
Tue, Sep 26, 2017 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

City:

The rapid expansion of charter schools has dramatically transformed the educational landscape in Michigan and around the country. As more and more children attend these schools, and more and more public money is spent outside the traditional public school system, ordinary Americans are left to wonder what this means for themselves and their children. Who is behind these schools? To what extent are they accountable to the public? What is their relationship to the longstanding issues of inequality and racial segregation in American public schools?

Moving Detroit Forward – Advancing Environmental Justice in a Changing Climate

Date: 
Thu, Oct 5, 2017 - 6:00pm to 8:30pm

City:

The record-breaking storms Harvey and Irma, which devastated Texas and Florida, are a warning that the predicted effects of climate change are already occurring. Detroit area groups concerned about the increasingly severe effects of climate change on those Detroit citizens already impacted by environmental injustice, want to know how city leaders are planning for the threats of climate change. Consequently, these seven groups are cosponsoring a candidate discussion with the theme of Moving Detroit Forward – Advancing Environmental Justice in a Changing Climate.
