Repeal Public Act 4 Community Rally and Petition Drive
Advertisements [?]
Dear friends:

We need 161,000 signatures to put the brakes on Michigans Emergency Manager law. Polls show that the majority of Michigan citizens would vote to repeal Public Act 4. In the campaigns first month, over 50,000 signatures were collected to repeal this unfunded mandate, lets work together to finish the job!

We invite you to join Congressman John Conyers, Rev D. Alexander Bullock, Amalgamated Transit Union Local 26, Detroit Young Democrats, 14th Congressional Democratic Party, 14th District Young Democrats, Young Democrats of Michigan, Labor Leaders, Elected Officials, and most importantly the Community and YOU for a Day of Action community rally and petition canvass.

Repeal Public Act 4 Community Rally and Petition Drive
August 6, 2011
10am to 4pm
14th District Democratic Party Office
20225 Livernois in Detroit

This canvass will kick-off a series of community action days in communities across the state. We will begin at Mumford High School for a community rally with many guest speakers, including Congressman Conyers, Rev. D Alexander Bullock, and Rep. Jimmy Womack.

Afterward, we ask that you join us as we hit the streets and help canvass Detroits 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th House Districts. This will be a chance to explain to our friends and neighbors why this is such a crucial moment in Michigans history, and gain the signatures we need to stop PA 4

If you want to be part of the August 6th community day of action, please contact:

Ken Whittaker at 313.444.0536, kenrwhittaker@gmail.com

Special thanks to Dean of the Congressional Black Caucus Rep. John Conyers, Jr, Isaac Robinson, Marvin Bing, Ken Whittaker, Shanay Watson-Whittaker, Rev. David Bullock, Rev. Charles Williams II, ATU Local 26, Metropolitan AFL-CIO, AFSCME COUNCIL #25 and Young Democrats of Michigan for their leadership in working to SUSPEND Public Act 4.

We need as many organizations as possible to join in this effort. Have your neighborhood organization or group contact us to get involved.
