Macomb/Detroit Community Conversation

Date: 
Sun, Feb 17, 2019 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

City:

During last year’s "Across 8 Mile" community conversation, residents of Macomb County and Detroit listened to each other as they talked about issues of common concern: fair wages, skills development training, clean water, and health care.

Besides talking, they took action, too — working for One Fair Wage, Earned Paid Sick Time, greater democracy, and candidates who respect the people’s will.
