Coby's Birthdayraiser: a benefit for VNP

Date: 
Mon, Aug 21, 2017 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Coby only wants one thing for his birthday: an end to gerrymandering. If you want the same thing, you're invited to his birthday party, raising support for the Voters Not Politicians campaign.

VNP will be collecting signatures in all 83 counties of Michigan, but that takes a lot of people and money, especially for an all-volunteer organization. Printing petitions, making clipboards, buying pens, shipping everything- it's an expensive endeavor, and we need your help to make it successful.

Do you feel like Republican's aren't listening to you?

Well this is the town hall for you! Come out to make you voice heard, ask your elected officials questions directly and find out how we can set up a state-level defense right here in Michigan.
