Single Payer Lobbying Day in Lansing!

Date: 
Tue, Apr 9, 2019 - 9:30am to 3:30pm

City:

Come help us talk to state lawmakers about MICare, the State Single Payer bill introduced last year by Yousef Rabhi! This is a crucial process--we need to explain single payer to legislators, ask for their support, and gather their feedback about single payer for Michigan. We are trying to get over 20 cosponsors! Meet at Grand Traverse Pie Co. and we will hand out lit and do a quick training before going to meet our state congresspeople! (NOTE: We had to change the date to April 9th please take note!) .

Cards for queer incarcerated folks

Date: 
Thu, Mar 7, 2019 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Come make cards for queer incarcerated people! Letters to the prisons send love and support to people who need it and signal to the guards that there are people on the outside who care about these folks.
If you're worried about what to say, there are pre-made formats!
We'll have some snacks, feel free to bring some if you want. Invite your friends!
