City:

Connect & Act 2018 (the ICPJ conference held in March in Ypsilanti) gave us a venue to highlight five important focus areas that have been cornerstones of ICPJ's work for many years. Participants heard, from movement leaders, about current campaigns involving Racial Justice, Environmental Justice, Immigration Reform, Strengthening our Democracy and how all of these human rights issues are being addressed in the Poor People's Campaign.

ICPJ would like to invite you to continue the conversation! We are pleased to introduce a monthly meetup series to address the work of mobilizing for change between now and the November election and beyond. In this time of great danger, we believe that this is a unique opportunity to help build the momentum to clarify the intersections of our social justice challenges. Join us to know each other and learn about concrete ways to plug into the movement. Hear from others! Bring your ideas!

To that end, for our first meeting we will be focusing on the Michigan Poor People's Campaign (PPC). The PPC is in the middle of a campaign of 40 days of action. Nationally, demonstrators are meeting at state capitols for 6 weeks in a row. By next Thursday, there will have been three demonstrations in Lansing, to lay the foundation for an ongoing Poor People's Campain in Michigan. Learn more about this campaign next week!
