Election 20XX City Leadership Assembly

Date: 
Tue, Oct 1, 2019 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

City:

Election 20XX City Leadership Assembly is your opportunity as a resident to work with candidates for City Council to prioritize issues.

Far too often the issues that matter most to Black families and residents are a low priority for elected officials and thus rarely centered in policy or funding. People's Assemblies are designed to create a co-governance relationship between residents and elected leadership. All City Council Candidates are invited to join residents of Lansing in prioritizing the issues that impact our lives.

City:

Sister march for March for Black Women in D.C. and NYC, organized by Black Women’s Blueprint. Black women are often left out of feminist and pro-Black spaces. This march is our space to speak. Our purpose is to educate the community on the many issues that Black women face (Trans violence, sexual assault, domestic violence, etc.) and also celebrate them. Black women are always there to support others and it’s time they receive the same support.

The Ann Arbor Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People -NAACP- held it first Juneteenth Celebration in 1994. The branch began this celebration at the urging of Rev. Herbert Lowe, then pastor of the Church of the Good Shepard in Ann Arbor. The idea was to have a community event celebrated in Ann Arbor that was a joyful time in the life of African Americans. Wheeler Park, formerly Summit Park was chosen as the site for this celebration because it had been the center of an African American neighborhood in Ann Arbor.
