Join us for a discussion on escalating state repression and help us raise legal funds for our local friends and J20 defendants. Nearly 200 people (including 8 from Michigan and 4 from Ypsilanti) are facing 75 years in prison for protesting Trump on inauguration day. The only evidence against them was their mass arrest. They were never told to disperse, but were kettled, projectile pepper sprayed, and hoarded into police vans.

TOPIC:
GHETTO ECONOMICS
how do we get our markets back?
how do WE become owners, not be the ones owned?
how do we reclaim our economic power, that was stolen from us?

Detroit has undergone a power and pride shift whereby Black and poor people who live in the city have been marginalized and desensitized to the very processes that affect us.

Grits and Politics Detroit is a regular breakfast hosted by former Wayne County Commissioner Keith D. Williams to energize Black people and poor people about political processes.
