The focus of our May session will be voter access and participation in our democracy. Promote the Vote is a coalition working to pass a proposed amendment to Michigan's Constitution that would make voting more accessible. A representative from this group will be with us to talk about the issues our state faces in accessing our right to vote and how the proposed amendment addresses those challenges. We will talk about the content of the proposed amendment and the campaign's current status. We will then have time for questions and discussion.

Medicare for All Town Hall

Date: 
Wed, May 9, 2018 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm

We need a healthcare system that prioritizes the health of working-class Americans over the profits of insurance companies and their billionaire executives. We need a single, universal system with comprehensive coverage that is free at the point of service. If you or someone you know is in debt because of healthcare costs or can't see a doctor because of lack of insurance--you're not alone.

Wayne-Washtenaw Regional Transit Strategy Meeting

Date: 
Tue, May 1, 2018 - 2:15pm

City:

While the Motor City Freedom Riders and other transit advocates will continue to fight for a four-county RTA measure, we must also ensure that we have a plan B. Oakland and Macomb county leadership are showing no signs of allowing the people of our region to vote on transit this year, and we cannot afford to wait until 2020 or 2022 for any transit progress. The time has come for Wayne and Washtenaw Counties to set out together, to prepare a two-county regional transit plan for the voters on this November's ballot.
