WeROC March Meeting of the Whole

Thu, Mar 1, 2018 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm


Mar 1 - WeROC March Meeting of the Whole. 5:30-7:30, Community Church of God, 565 Jefferson, Ypsilanti (parking entrance just north of the church).Our March WeROC Meeting of the Whole comes at a critical and exciting time for our work as an effective and united community voice.  Our power, and our collective "smarts", exist and grow for one reason -- because YOU, and other representatives of congregations, unions, community organizations, and the larger community who care have found a small part of your busy lives to work with others in big enough numbers to make a real difference around us.  Not rocket science, but it's real, and it's working!Next Thursday, leaders of our current Action Teams will give you a chance to catch up on (and hopefully plug into!) these aspects of our work together:

  • The 4 prongs of our new Mental Health Equity Campaign (Community Mental Health, Sheriff's Department, Veterans services, and school mental health resources)
  • Education Action Team's continued work with school districts, including responding quickly to a disturbing incident recently where Ypsi Community Schools students of color received an ugly racist email.
  • Latest news on a Community Benefits Ordinance in the City of Ypsi -- ongoing work on bottom-up local economic development decisions with the new REDY coalition (Rising for Economic Democracy in Ypsilanti). which WeROC has helped to co-create.
  • Also, our Fundraising Committee's initial plans for what promises to be a big, fun Prayer Breakfast fundraiser in a few months.

Hope to see you there!  -- Tad Wysor, Volunteer WeROC Organizer  734 883 3225, tadwysor@gmail.comFacebook.com/werocmi AND website: werocmi.org
