Don't Move, Fight Back! Housing Justice for Grand Rapids NOW!

Date: 
Sun, Aug 5, 2018 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Join renters and homeowners who want to organize for housing justice on Sunday, August 5th at 6:00 pm in Garfield Park to build a platform that says "housing is a human right." The city’s corporate developer and landlord funded agenda isn’t what working people in Grand Rapids need. But we can create a people’s housing agenda for justice that centers on renters, low-income people and communities of color having a right to the city, and plan for actions to organize for a housing program that puts people over profit.

Kent County Progressive Caucus Meeting

Date: 
Mon, Jul 9, 2018 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

Let's get together before the Kent Dems Meeting on July 11th, and kick around some ideas as to how to move this party to the left. Let's face it, nothing new is happening, they're pushing the usual candidates to the forefront and leaving progressive candidates behind AGAIN. The Democratic Party is the party of the people and we must take it back. Right now we have about 20 active members, and we need to increase those numbers drastically. Supreme Court Justice Kennedy is retiring and things are going to get worse fast.
