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.

The Lansing City council has called a special meeting to discuss and hopefully reach a decision on the "welcoming cities" resolution they have been putting off for months. Our continued efforts have taken this from a dead issue to the point where we may finally get a decision but we need one more big swell of support to do so.

Sat, Apr 8, 2017 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

A peaceful demonstration to bring the immediate necessity of our health care to the politicians who would rather support tax cuts for the wealthy. We will demonstrate for the people of Flint who need and deserve excellent, affordable health care after being poisoned by our state government. We demonstrate for the disabled, the elderly, the sick, and the poor people of Michigan who we will not allow to be sacrificed to enrich wealthy insurance companies. We demonstrate for ourselves and our families. Let's show our power!
