We have an exciting and crowded field of candidates vying for State Rep, and a unique opportunity to elect someone truly progressive. All of these candidates are running as Democrats — if they win the primary on August 7, they essentially win the race.

We have a great range of candidates — from activists, to union organizers, to lawyers, to city officials. Some have experience working on campaigns or have been around politics for a while, others are complete newcomers. You may have met some of them as they canvas our neighborhoods.

Here’s your opportunity to hear what these candidates stand for, and what they would promote if elected.

This year is Stephanie Chang’s last year as our State Rep. She is now running for office in the State Senate race for District 1.

The host for this event, LP-Indivisible, is a progressive activist group based in Lafayette Park, Detroit. Formed after the 2016 election, we have focused on bringing pressure on the Trump administration’s harmful policies and on holding our elected officials accountable to their constituents.

There are ten candidates in this race. In an effort to make this forum as substantive as possible, LP-Indivisible has invited candidates who most closely align with our interests.

We are grateful to all the candidates who seek to represent us in Lansing. We urge District 6 constituents to research all ten candidates running for office.
