Join us for a day of reflection on Peace in our homes, our city, our state, our country, our World. The Megiddo Peace Table is situated in the Peace Center and may we gather around it to listen and share all our hopes for Peace in the World. Join us! Light refreshments. Tel: 313 963-7575 Therefore....Let's have a dialogue about the future of the local peace movement. How effective are we? Of the tactics we use, what works and what doesn't? How can we encourage more people to join our organizations or at least participate in events? Which messages get people interested in peace? How can our organizations work together to project our aims and goals to the public? These are only a few questions to consider. Bring your own questions and ideas to the peace table. Let's have an honest conversation about moving the peace agenda forward. We hope you can participate and that you will extend the invitation to others whom you would like to see and hear in such a discussion.

The rapid expansion of charter schools has dramatically transformed the educational landscape in Michigan and around the country. As more and more children attend these schools, and more and more public money is spent outside the traditional public school system, ordinary Americans are left to wonder what this means for themselves and their children. Who is behind these schools? To what extent are they accountable to the public? What is their relationship to the longstanding issues of inequality and racial segregation in American public schools? Where do they fit into debates about issues like standardized testing or teacher tenure? This month, Detroit's Jacobin Reading Group will be meeting on Tuesday September 26th from 6pm to 8pm at the Main branch of the Detroit Public Library at 5201 Woodward to discuss issues surrounding charter schools in Detroit and around the country. Joining us for the conversation are representatives from the American Federation of Teachers, who will be discussing their work on these issues and sharing information about how Detroiters can get involved.

Join this protest . . . as the Republicans are trying one last time to pass an atrocious, heartless healthcare bill before the Sept. 30 reconciliation deadline. It is likely there will be no CBO score. There will be no hearings, no amendments. It is likely they will vote on this horrific bill late next week (Sept. 28-30?), so we need to make some noise. We ask you to bring signs that read: REJECT TRUMPCARE or SAVE MY LIFE (in reference to a little girl whose medical care may be threatened by the Graham-Cassidy bill). We will be gathering before our regularly scheduled Indivisible meeting. You are welcome to attend the meeting at 7:00 pm, as well.

The record-breaking storms Harvey and Irma, which devastated Texas and Florida, are a warning that the predicted effects of climate change are already occurring. Detroit area groups concerned about the increasingly severe effects of climate change on those Detroit citizens already impacted by environmental injustice, want to know how city leaders are planning for the threats of climate change. Consequently, these seven groups are cosponsoring a candidate discussion with the theme of Moving Detroit Forward – Advancing Environmental Justice in a Changing Climate. This event takes place 6 PM to 8:30 PM on October 5, 2017 (Thursday evening) at the Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium on the campus of Wayne State University Law School. It will consist of separate panels for the candidates for mayor and the candidates for city council-at-large. Each session will start with opening comments followed by questions from the sponsoring organizations. The groups sponsoring this forum are: Wayne State University Political Science Student Association; Wayne State University College Democrats; Detroit NAACP and the Michigan State Conference NAACP; Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice/Detroit Climate Action Collaborative (DWEJ/DCAC); People’s Water Board; Sierra Club Michigan Chapter; Citizens’ Climate Lobby – Detroit chapter (lead organizer).

Save the date! Join author Mark Bray for a talk and conversation about his new, timely book, "Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook." Details to come soon. Books will be available at the event, or can be purchased ahead of time from the publisher, Melville House, at https://www.mhpbooks.com/books/antifa/. The following is a description of the book: In the wake of tragic events in Charlottesville, VA, and Donald Trump’s initial refusal to denounce the white nationalists behind it all, the “antifa” opposition movement is suddenly appearing everywhere. But what is it, precisely? And where did it come from? As long as there has been fascism, there has been anti-fascism — also known as “antifa.” Born out of resistance to Mussolini and Hitler in Europe during the 1920s and ’30s, the antifa movement has suddenly burst into the headlines amidst opposition to the Trump administration and the alt-right. They could be seen in news reports, often clad all in black with balaclavas covering their faces, fighting police at the presidential inauguration, on California college campuses protesting right-wing speakers, and, most recently, on the streets of Charlottesville, VA, protecting, among others, a group of ministers including Cornel West from neo-Nazi violence. (West would later tell reporters, “The anti-fascists saved our lives.”) Simply, antifa aims to deny fascists the opportunity to promote their oppressive politics, and to protect tolerant communities from acts of violence promulgated by fascists. Critics say shutting down political adversaries is anti-democratic; antifa adherents argue that the horrors of fascism must never be allowed the slightest chance to triumph again. In a smart and gripping investigation, historian and former Occupy Wall Street organizer Mark Bray provides a detailed survey of the full history of anti-fascism from its origins to the present day — the first transnational history of postwar anti-fascism in English. Based on interviews with anti-fascists from around the world, Antifa details the tactics of the movement and the philosophy behind it, offering insight into the growing but little-understood resistance fighting back against fascism in all its guises. https://www.facebook.com/events/113595802643555/
