Michael Moore's Non-Voters Gathering

Date: 
Sat, Apr 21, 2018 - 11:00am to 3:00pm

City:

You are America's forgotten block of voters! You are 90+ million strong! You are proud! And you are the majority - THE NON-VOTERS!

On Saturday, April 21st, Michael Moore, One Michigan and Detroit community organizers are congregating the first of it's kind Non-Voter Gathering. This will NOT be a lecture or a history lesson. It will be an opportunity for American patriots who love their families, their friends and their communities, but decided to not participate -- and all for good reasons.

Mid Michigan Movement Politics Campaign Deep Dive

Date: 
Sat, Apr 21, 2018 - 10:00am to Sun, Apr 22, 2018 - 6:00pm

Over the last 50 years, the Right has achieved near total control of our political system. In its most recent iterations it has moved toward Fascism. We now know that the incremental business as usual politics is ill-equipped to face this threat. And we know deep in our hearts that the time is right to take governing power for the 99%. To do this effectively, we need a new kind of politics: we call it movement politics.
