We will remain a sanctuary city!

Date: 
Wed, Apr 12, 2017 - 6:30pm to 9:30pm

City:

After three months of consistent pressure and input from residents in Lansing, the city council took the largely symbolic action of declaring Lansing a sanctuary city. Not even a week later we were warned that the council would consider rescinding that action. Here we are eight days after that declaration: the business-first minded members of the council have bowed to economic pressure from the racist conservatives in the Lansing and Michigan chambers of commerce.

Lansing Grassroots Anti-Corruption Forum

Date: 
Wed, Apr 12, 2017 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

City:

President Trump vowed to use his first 100 days in office to "Drain the Swamp." But Congress continues to be plagued by conflicts of interest, and anti-corruption rules have even been rolled back.

But it's not just a problem in Congress. An investigation by the Center for Public Integrity gave Michigan an F on its latest corruption risk report card. We need to do better - and we can.

Come to the Lansing Grassroots Anti-Corruption Forum to meet anti-corruption experts and Lansing community members who are ready to make a difference.
