Women's March - Southeast Michigan Meeting

Date: 
Sat, May 20, 2017 - 10:30am to 12:30pm

Monthly meeting of the Women's March - Southeast Michigan. Please note the different time and date for May. There was conflicts due to Mother's Day, Memorial Day and functions on May 21. We are getting together to re-energize after the first 100 days. Many of you have expressed being fatigued and defeated. I hope this meeting will inject some new activism in you. We will have new plans of action based on what is critical in congress.

Gretchen Whitmer who is running for governor has expressed interest in attending and speaking with us.

Women Organize Michigan Summit-Detroit

Date: 
Sun, Apr 23, 2017 - 9:00am to 5:00pm

This summit will have a specific economic focus.

We want to highlight that women are just as concerned about the economy as men, that we are economic leaders, small business owners, breadwinners, and that things that are typically considered "women's issues" like paid family leave, equal pay, family planning, abortion access, equal protection under the law, etc are all economic issues, too!

Location: 
Cobo Center, Detroit
Address: 
1 Washington Blvd, Detroit, Michigan 48226
