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.
