Schuette Shut-Down

Date: 
Mon, Jul 23, 2018 - 2:30pm to 4:00pm

City:

The job of the Attorney General is to be a voice and advocate for the people and the environment, but A.G. Bill Schuette has spent his tenure doing the bidding of wealthy donors, standing by as Line 5 and Nexus threaten our Great Lakes, as Flint children drank poisoned water, as Nestle bottles water for virtually free while citizens of Detroit are having their water shut off. We say NO MORE!

Beyond Coal - November General Meeting

Date: 
Tue, Nov 28, 2017 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

City:

This month’s theme is energy justice. As DTE Energy prepares to raise ALL our rates and build a natural gas plant, we’re planning to make sure environmental justice and communities of color are heard in the process. These communities often spend more on their energy bills than others and will bear the most impacts of climate change. Renewable energy is the only path forward to ensure long-term success and affordability.

Also on the agenda: meeting with our local representatives, updates on cities moving to 100% renewable energy (including an exciting update), and much more!

Moving Detroit Forward – Advancing Environmental Justice in a Changing Climate

Date: 
Thu, Oct 5, 2017 - 6:00pm to 8:30pm

City:

The record-breaking storms Harvey and Irma, which devastated Texas and Florida, are a warning that the predicted effects of climate change are already occurring. Detroit area groups concerned about the increasingly severe effects of climate change on those Detroit citizens already impacted by environmental injustice, want to know how city leaders are planning for the threats of climate change. Consequently, these seven groups are cosponsoring a candidate discussion with the theme of Moving Detroit Forward – Advancing Environmental Justice in a Changing Climate.

Flint Water Crisis-A Documentary

Date: 
Thu, Jul 20, 2017 - 5:30pm to 8:00pm

City:

Flint's water crisis is not solved, so Flint should not be forgotten. The cameras have gone, but the lead remains. A question that lingers is who is to blame? There's plenty of blame to go around. Find out who are the usual and unusual suspects so that we can use our vote to fire government criminals.
