How much regulation do you think coal plants have on dumping their wastewater into the Great Lakes? If you answered "almost nothing" to this question, you'd, unfortunately, be correct. Coal ash is largely unregulated but that's about to change. The Environmental Protection Agency has released new rules that protect our water quality. However, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality is once again allowing industries to avoid the law for as long as possible. Please join us at our next meeting on Tuesday, September 27, 2016, to learn more. Location, as always, is 2550 Hilton Rd, Ferndale, MI 48220. We also discuss a few other important things, including a lawsuit from US Steel that will impact the last few years of work we've been doing around sulfur dioxide pollution. RSVP Link: https://www.facebook.com/events/282816425450428/ Other items include the volunteer dinner, upcoming events, and the potential to be pushing back against DTE Energy's rate increases. I hope to see you there! Andrew Sarpolis Associate Organizing Representative Southeast Michigan Beyond Coal Campaign 2550 Hilton Rd, Suite C Ferndale, MI 48220 Phone (248) 924-4857

This Saturday, the Huron Valley Area Labor Federation will begin knocking doors to encourage people to vote for pro-education, pro-labor candidates in November. We will campaign for Donna Lasinski for the 52 nd district of the Michigan State House, and also for the re-election of UM Regents Laurence Deitch and Denise Ilitch. We need pro-labor representatives in the State House so that they can prevent further anti-labor legislation and start putting forth pro-labor laws! And having Regents who support us will give GEO and LEO a lot more power at the bargaining table! Each of these campaigns is winnable, but we have to knock as many doors and talk to as many voters as we can! Statewide, AFT has a goal of knocking on 350,000 doors—which comes out to about 1 (~3-hour) shift for every 50 union members. For GEO that’s about 26-28 shifts, which is very doable! In fact, we could do it in one day (and again every week after that)! Any number of shifts you can take will be appreciated, and the more shifts you can take, the better we’ll do! Other unions, including UM-LEO and EMUFT, will be knocking doors with us, so we need to do our part as well. If you have any questions about the canvassing, please feel free to contact Rebecca Thomas (renicholet@gmail.com) or Jesse Holloway (jessenihongo2@gmail.com). If you plan on coming out to knock doors, please RSVP to this event! If you can’t make it on Saturdays, come to knock doors on our dedicated UM walk nights on Thursdays, 4-7pm. https://www.facebook.com/events/1790095471265835/

“Is Your Food Fair? A Conversation at the Intersection of Racial, Labor, and Food Justice.” Join us for dinner with members of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) and local activists as they discuss the intersections between the food system, racial justice, and labor rights. The CIW will give a presentation followed by small group discussions about how we can support their work and as well as each others’ in Ann Arbor. The Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) is a worker-based human rights organization. CIW’s work started in 1993 and has been reinforced with the creation of a national consumer network since 2000. The CIW’s national Campaign for Fair Food educates consumers on the issue of farm labor exploitation – its causes and solutions – and forges alliances between farmworkers and consumers in an effort to enlist the market power of major corporate buyers to help end that exploitation. The CIW has been highly lauded by a number of organizations from a diversity of fields, including the Roosevelt Institute, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and the U.S. State Department. The CIW's innovative approach has been extraordinarily successful in improving wages and working conditions for farmworkers. We will have tables for fliers and are encouraging people to bring literature from their own groups. Please note a light dinner will be served with vegan and gluten free options. https://www.facebook.com/events/316651242030462/

For the third time since a spirited noise demo in downtown Detroit on September 9 -- in solidarity with a nationwide prisoner strike on the 45th anniversary of Attica -- folks are meeting to amp up prisoner support and anti-prison/anti-police work in Michigan. All are welcome (except cops and other enforcers of the incarceral society), children included, with a special encouragement to those formerly imprisoned and people who have loved ones behind bars. On October 11, among other things, we will: 1. Write letters to prisoners currently resisting within various Michigan facilities (30 minutes). 2. Get an update on the proposed new Wayne County Jail and hear about three "no new jail" campaigns in other cities as a basis to potentially launch a similar campaign here (30 minutes). 3. Touch base on the Wed., Oct. 12 "Can't Cage Our Humanity Rally in Solidarity with LGBTQ Prisoners" noon to 1 pm, outside MDOC headquarters in Lansing, especially carpooling the next morning (gather at 9 a.m.; leave at 9:30 a.m.) from St. Peter's parking lot (15 minutes). For more info on the rally and to invite friends, see https://www.facebook.com/events/1781186232150682/. 4. Discuss alternative meeting days/times and continued outreach to those most impacted by the prison-industrial system (15 minutes). If you'd like to get on our e-mail list, which will include minutes from these still-informal meetings, please private message us your e-mail address -- and/or "like" the No New Jails, No Old Jails page to get updates from time to time. St. Peter's is kindly loaning us a meeting space, but asked that we pass the hat for donations toward sustaining this fantastic community-oriented space. Please share this event page widely and invite others! (Image from Neilwaukee.) #UntilEveryCageIsEmpty #UntilAllAreFree https://www.facebook.com/events/961355173987354/

Queer and trans prisoners in Michigan are refusing to submit to dehumanizing sexual harassment and mistreatment by guards. Inspired by their courage and in solidarity with their struggle, we rally again on October 12 outside MDOC headquarters in Lansing. Our common humanity crosses all walls and cages. Until all of us are free, we demand dignity and justice for queer and trans prisoners. Bring: Signs and banners, water and snacks, and lots of people (carpools are great!) CARPOOL INFO!!!!!!! FROM DETROIT: "Meet at 9 a.m. in the parking lot at St. Peter's Church, 1950 Trumbull Avenue, Detroit. We'll leave at 9:30 a.m. for the noon rally in Lansing, and be back midafternoon to Detroit." Background: In April, queer and trans prisoners at the G. Robert Cotton facility in Jackson filed grievances against a guard named Castilla for sexual harassment. Retaliation began almost immediately, with Castilla and his friends issuing bogus disciplinary tickets against the grieving prisoners. Three of seven prisoners were transferred to other units or facilities. The grievances were all eventually rejected for "insufficient evidence" (despite multiple witnesses) and Castilla and other homophobic guards continue their illegal behavior. We hear reports of the exact same thing happening at other Michigan prisons (multiple witnesses dismissed as "insufficient evidence"). Sexual harassment of prisoners is a violation of the federal Prison Rape Elimination Act. Apart from more people becoming aware of the issue, nothing has materially improved since we last rallied in solidarity with the prisoners in May. The Legislative Corrections Ombudsman's office launched an investigation and spoke with trans prisoners at Cotton, but nothing has changed for the better yet. Prisoners have filed more grievances against Castilla and other homophobic guards (Hursh, Morey, Funches, and Johnson). Meanwhile, these guards have ganged up to retaliate against the prisoners for standing up for their rights. Queer and trans prisoners are getting more bogus tickets; for example, one prisoner was ticketed for sexual misconduct for tucking in his shirt! They are given excessive sanctions, such as 35 days of lost privileges for an offense that would normally carry only five days of punishment. Prisoners have been denied the right to review the supposed evidence against them and grievance officers have refused to review camera footage to prove prisoners' innocence. Queer and trans prisoners want the public to know about the corruption in prison and want our help to amplify their voices. Please spread the word! Here are some of their issues and demands: - Zero tolerance for harassment or brutality by prison staff. - NO RETALIATION for filing grievances. - Guards who sexually harass prisoners should be removed from their units when they're under investigation, per MDOC's own policy. - These homophobic guards already have dozens or, in some cases, over a hundred grievances against them. They should be removed from all contact with prisoners. - Staff should be prohibited from forming cliques for purposes of retaliating against prisoners who file grievances. - Staff should be required to follow MDOC's own policies and federal policies that protect the rights of prisoners. - Guards under investigation should be suspended or relocated until the investigation is over. This is already MDOC policy, but it has not happened in these cases at Cotton. - Guards should be disciplined for talking about queer and trans prisoners in dehumanizing, denigrating ways to other prisoners, endangering their safety. This is already against MDOC policy. - MDOC must provide better training for staff on professional, nondiscriminatory treatment of queer and trans people. - Any CO under investigation is to be suspended or relocated during the investigation. - Queer and trans prisoners should have the voluntary option of a designated unit or facility and yard where they are safe from sexual harassment and assault. - Appropriate medical care. - Trans prisoners should be able to keep hormones in their quarters. In recent months, hormones have been put on "restricted" status, forcing all trans prisoners to request them every day. Hormones are prisoners' personal business. - End corruption at MDOC, such as misappropriation of the Prisoner Benefit Fund. https://www.facebook.com/events/1781186232150682/

http://www.therouge.org/our-work/volunteer/benthic-macroinvertebrate-sampling Do you ever wonder about what lives in the river besides fish and turtles? Come to one of our Rouge River Bug Hunts and see for yourself the amazing variety of aquatic insects, crayfish, snails and clams (technically known as benthic macroinvertebrates: animals without a backbone that live in the streambed) that make up the bottom of the river food chain. Volunteers visit sites throughout the headwaters of the watershed and search for mayflies, stoneflies and other aquatic invertebrates. The presence or absence of these streambed creatures reflects the quality of the water and habitat. We meet at Schoolcraft College where you will meet the rest of your team and head to two sites along the river - once there, trained team leaders get in the river to collect samples while you search through sampling trays on the banks for the insects. Registration is required by September 30: https://docs.google.com/a/therouge.org/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeywq0gymbMBzlfDH8IbnR2sFXq8NiacEyl3z8k1H4l4bJKCQ/viewform
