Healthcare Discussion Group

Date: 
Sun, Mar 11, 2018 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm

City:

Hello all! We are experiencing a healthcare crisis in this country. Over 60% of bankruptcies are due to medical costs. We spend more on healthcare than any other country, yet experience poorer health outcomes than those who have universal healthcare. Health outcomes have been shown to be particularly poor in poverty-stricken, working-class, black and brown communities.

Ypsi March for Love, Resilience, and Action 2018

Date: 
Sat, Jan 20, 2018 - 12:30pm to 4:00pm

City:

We are connecting the theme of this march to gentrification in Ypsilanti. We want to focus on how important it is to keep communities intact, as a way of deepening and broadening our coalitions of resistance at the national level. We want to connect opposition to tax reform, fears about the future of Medicaid, outrage that we have a sexual predator in the White House, etc. to the question of how Ypsilanti can be TOGETHER in meeting these challenges.

Rally to Halt the Academic Partnerships Contract

Date: 
Fri, Dec 15, 2017 - 11:00am to 11:30am

City:

Join EMUFT, EMU-AAUP, and the campus community for a rally in front of Welch Hall to halt EMU's contract with Academic Partnerships, a private, for-profit firm in Texas, to market EMU-branded degrees entirely online -- with no in-person classroom instruction. These degrees will carry the EMU name. But they won't have the quality, scholarship and service that are hallmarks of a true EMU education.

It's time to hit the pause button and send this secretive deal to the EMU faculty for a thorough review.
