The GOP tax bill fight is not over yet. Bring signs and/or pots and pans outside Upton's office, near Sarkozy's, to make noise, to show we are not fooled. This tax bill will mean the further impoverishment of millions of people.

Last Friday, while you slept, behind closed doors and without discussion or debate, Republicans voted to transfer over a billion dollars from working families into the pockets of the wealthiest people and corporations in America with an outrageous tax reform bill.

You weren't dreaming. That really happened.

Stop the TAX SCAM! Tell Walberg!

Date: 
Thu, Dec 7, 2017 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

City:

The GOP is about to vote on the final bill of the #taxscam. This is a bill written by lobbyists in a back room, parts of it by hand illegibly, with no debate, no hearings, no nonpartisan expert analysis. It will add $1.5 trillion to the deficit, raise taxes for everyone making under $75k, devastate grad students and people with student loans, screw over people with high medical expenses, and it is a pretext for gutting medicare, medicaid and social security and food assistance.

Protest this awful plan

Date:

City:

Bishop and his friends are such hypocritical Republicans! far from fiscal conservatism, now they're saying "don't worry about the deficit, don't worry about the national debt!" Their plan to pay for these tax cuts is to cut Medicaid, Medicare, and other social programs. They're assuming 4% growth, which is magical thinking. These tax cuts will wreak harm for a whole generation and they're going for it, do or die! We must fight this!

Community Benefits Ordinances: A Lansing Conversation

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

City:

Join us as we host Rashida Tlaib of the Sugar Law Center and Linda Campbell of the Equitable Detroit Coalition to learn firsthand about their work establishing a community benefits ordinance in Detroit.

A community benefits ordinance is based on the principle that public investment should serve the public good. When real estate developers receive tax abatements from the city, they should commit to legally binding agreements with the larger community, ensuring that the poorest and most ignored of our city have a true voice in the process.
