See complete venue details re: new location. Democratic congressional leaders are calling for rallies in support of Medicare, Medicaid, etc. on January 15. The rally in Michigan will feature U.S. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Debbie Stabenow, Senator Gary Peters, and other Michigan congressional members. The first email about this event said that it starts at 12:30 pm. The RSVP page says that it starts at 1:00 pm Here is the background from an email from Bernie Sanders: In less than one week, the new Republican Congress will begin their efforts to dismantle America’s health care system. Their goal is to take away health insurance from tens of millions of Americans, privatize Medicare, make massive cuts to Medicaid, increase prescription drug prices and defund Planned Parenthood. At the same time, in the midst of a grotesque and growing level of income and wealth inequality, they want obscene tax breaks for the top one-tenth of 1 percent. As we enter the new year, our message to the Republicans is simple and straight forward. You are not going to get away with it. You are not going to punish the elderly, disabled veterans, the children, the sick and the poor while you reward your billionaire friends. Stopping this Republican assault on the working class of this country will require the active participation of millions of Americans in every community in our country. In fact, it will require nothing less than a political revolution that engages millions of people from all walks of life, regardless of whether they voted for Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump or anyone else. On Sunday Jan. 15, Democratic members of Congress, trade unions, senior citizen groups, health care activists and all those who believe in economic and social justice are organizing a day of action called “Our First Stand: Save Health Care.” Rallies will be held around the country. Now I need to know that you’re in: Add your name to demand that Congress protect and expand the health care needs of working families, not cut them. Tell Trump and Congress that they must pass legislation that makes the wealthy start paying their fair share of taxes instead of trying to slash life-or-death programs that tens of millions of Americans rely on. Change will never happen from inside of Washington, D.C. — it will always come from our communities and the grassroots. That is what the history of America is all about. Whether it’s the creation of the trade union movement, the women’s movement, the civil right’s movement, the environmental movement, the gay rights movement and more, justice prevails when we stand together. We lose when we are divided or apathetic. So Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and I have asked my colleagues in Congress to organize events in their states and their districts where people can come together and make their voices heard. We will win when we are all in this fight together. With Donald Trump set to take office and Republicans in control of Congress, it’s more important than ever that we recommit ourselves to building a movement that transforms this country and brings people together around an agenda that works for the working families of this country, and not just the 1 percent. And Jan. 15 is a good day to begin that fight.

MoveOn is organizing community meetings about resisting Trump. Here is a link where you can find and sign up for events in Metro Detroit: https://act.moveon.org/event/cmty-mtgs-trump/search/ In the meantime, here is the MoveOn email soliciting hosts for community meetings. If you're interested in being a host, email me and I'll forward the MoveOn email to you: caltman at rocketmail.com Dear MoveOn member, Donald Trump is already moving a disastrous agenda into place that could jeopardize every bit of progress we've made together over the last 8 years. He's put forth frightening cabinet nominations. He has obvious and dangerous conflicts of interest. He has all but declared war on American democracy—with threats to take away millions of people’s healthcare, register and track every Muslim living in the U.S., implement a national stop-and-frisk policy to legally harass Black people, and deport millions of immigrants, who are not only critical to the economy, but who have families and other deep ties to this country. No one really knows what will happen after January 20, but we do know that we have to be prepared to form a strong, united line of resistance in order to protect the communities most affected by Trump's agenda, fight against policies that will benefit billionaires and bankrupt the rest of us, hold on to progressive victories—such as Obamacare—and defend our democracy. We're organizing Community Meetings to Resist Trump on Sunday, January 15—just days before the inauguration—to bring our communities together and talk about what resistance looks like for us at the local level. Will you join us? It could be in your living room, in a library or community center. We'll give you everything you need to pull together a successful meeting. We are partnering with People's Action to organize community meetings in living rooms and community centers across the country where we'll plan our next days of action and sketch a plan of how we'll keep out communities safe, defend our values, and resist the new administration—including by organizing opposition to Trump's dangerous cabinet appointments. We’ll provide everything you need for a successful meeting—a host guide, checklist, sample agenda, and more—and we'll be with you every step of the way, coaching, answering questions, and helping to recruit fellow MoveOn members to attend your event. All you need to sign up to host now is a venue (could be your living room!) and a desire to create change.

Noon – Rally 1:30 pm – Freedom March 3:00 pm – Community meal, poetry and music. Please note the NEW LOCATION: St. John’s Episcopal Church I-75 & Woodward Avenue, Detroit This church is located north of the parking lot that is next to the Central United Methodist Church. This year’s 14th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Rally & March comes at a time of rising hatred, bigotry and military conflict both inside the United States and around the world. On Monday January 16, 2017, the Detroit MLK Day Rally & March will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the historic Riverside Church address in New York City entitled “Beyond Vietnam: Breaking the Silence”, where Dr. King came out firmly against military intervention in southeast Asia. The speech was delivered on April 4, 1967, just one year prior to the Civil Rights and peace activist’s assassination in Memphis, Tennessee. Dr. King had been under pressure by the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) which had taken a firm position against the war in early January 1966. During 1967, Dr. King participated in large antiwar demonstrations in Chicago, New York City and other cities. In addition, 2017 represents the 50th anniversary of the July 23-27 Detroit Rebellion. These days of civil unrest marked the largest of such outbreaks in the history of the U.S. up until that time period. Dr. King, who remained a proponent of nonviolent resistance to racism and oppression until his death, did not condemn the rebellions which struck over 160 cities during 1967. He stated that “riots were the voices of the unheard.” He emphasized that the federal government needed to heed the calls of African Americans and other oppressed peoples for social justice in order to avoid a much more profound social calamity. Today, some five decades later, the problems of institutional racism, police brutality, poverty and the exorbitant Pentagon budget remain impediments to the country becoming a genuinely democratic society. Speakers at the rally and march will represent the various movements operating in Detroit related to water shut-offs, property tax foreclosures, joblessness, poverty, and governmental indifference to the suffering of the people. The message of Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement is still as relevant if not more so than it was in the 1960s.

Part of the promise of America is that every child should have the opportunity to pursue their dreams and passions. Realization of that dream always starts with a firm foundation in education.

ICPJ is co-sponsoring a talk by award-winning graphic novelist Joe Sacco titled "Galvanizing Social Justice through Comics. Leading graphic historical novelist Joe Sacco will chronicle how and why he uses the graphic novel format to catalyze social justice and human rights struggles in the U.S. and around the world. His award-winning novels include Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt (a portrait of some of the most marginalized communities in the United States, co-created with Pulitzer Prize-winner Chris Hedges); Footnotes in Gaza (a narrative of oral histories collected from elderly Palestinians who witnessed and survived a mass murder during the 1956 Suez War); and Safe Area Gorazde (an account of the brutal effects of the war in the former Yugoslavia on a besieged town that Sacco visited during and after the war). This presentation is part of a series on social justice-oriented graphic novels organized by the International Institute’s Enterprise-funded Conflict and Peace Initiative. The event is in partnership with the Penny Stamps Distinguished Lecture Series. http://www.icpj.org/2016/conflict-and-peace-initiative/ For more details, contact Mosab Ameur at mosab.ameur@gmail.com or 734-663-1870 https://www.facebook.com/events/1821777601433324/

STAND AGAINST TRUMP Protest on Inauguration Day Against War, Racism and Inequality Defend immigrants and build workers' unity! Progressive people from all over the country will be descending on Washington, D.C. on January 20, 2017 to stage a massive demonstration along Pennsylvania Avenue on Inauguration Day. It is critically important that we keep building a larger grassroots movement against war, militarism, racism, anti-immigrant scapegoating and neoliberal capitalism’s assault against workers’ living standards and the environment. Real social change comes from the bottom, the mobilized grassroots, and not from the centers of institutional power, the professional politicians or the capitalist elites. This country needs a real political revolution. Millions of people feel entirely disenfranchised by a political system that delivered the least favorable and trusted candidates in U.S. history. Many hoped that the Bernie Sanders campaign would represent a new direction and opportunity to take on entrenched power and extreme inequality, for a higher minimum wage, to defend Social Security, rebuild the labor movement, provide universal health care and free tuition. That campaign was largely suppressed, but its end does not change the desires and aspirations of tens of millions of people, workers and youth in particular, who are demanding real change. On Inauguration Day, thousands will be in the streets to give voice to the millions of people in this country who are demanding systemic change. Donald Trump is a racist, sexist bigot. We believe that tens of thousands of progressive people will be in the streets on Inauguration Day and in the weeks and months afterward. How one voted on election day is one thing, but even more important is whether we succeed in building a mass movement that can truly change the country, and the world. Waiting for the same politicians who led to the rise of Trump to now stop him is a lost cause. Join us on January 20, 2017 for a massive mobilization of the people — RSVP, Endorse, and get Transportation Information for the event here! http://www.answercoalition.org/protest_on_inauguration_day https://www.facebook.com/events/1068785513242447/

If we're going to have a serious protest, we need to get more people involved. Invite whoever you know that is as opposed to this man as you are. This will be a PEACEFUL protest in Detroit, the day Trump gets inaugurated. We need to get so many people involved that we can't be ignored! Our voices have to be so loud, they can't drown us out! Peaceful protest on Inauguration Day. Meeting, time and place tbd. https://www.facebook.com/events/894899183978043/

Follow us on Twitter! https://twitter.com/MarchOnLansing We will hold a rally on the steps of the capitol, with speeches by public figures and some musical performances as well. We had initially hoped to march, but that turned out to be cost prohibitive. So instead we are symbolically marching from all corners of Michigan to gather at the capitol and demonstrate. The goal of this event is to be all inclusive-- it will be a peaceful demonstration in opposition to the wave of hate crimes and violence, and threats of official discrimination that have prolifierated following the election. Allies from any religion, of any race, of all sexual orientations and genders, and of all abilities will stand together as a united front. We want to be clear that we won't tolerate any sexism, bigotry, racism, hate, or intolerance from our elected officials. We are for a Michigan that respects and protects all its citizens, that celebrates diversity and nurtures the human potential in each of us. This will be a sister event to the Women's March on Washington.

The Italian dictator Benito Mussolini described fascism as the merger of the corporations with the government and state. Are we technically living under fascism? What is still missing is a fascist culture and movement. Is this what the president elect is bringing to the nation? All are welcome. Bring a dish to pass and your family. Invite your community and pack your car! There will be a space for the kids to hang out, eat, do art, and chill. There will be someone there with the children but it will be every parents responsibility to make sure their kids stay there, go to the bathroom, and have everything they need to be comfortable.

Before the Flood The science is clear. The future is not. Before the Flood, features Leonardo DiCaprio on a journey as a United Nations Messenger of Peace, traveling to five continents and the Arctic to witness climate change firsthand. He goes on expeditions with scientists uncovering the reality of climate change and meets with political leaders fighting against inaction. He also discovers a calculated disinformation campaign orchestrated by powerful special interests working to confuse the public about the urgency of the growing climate crisis. From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens, Before the Flood presents a riveting account of the dramatic changes now occurring around the world due to climate change, as well as the actions we as individuals and as a society can take to prevent the disruption of life on our planet. Discussion following, led by Andrew Sarpolis of the Sierra Club.

presented by Mike Wiley Productions Tue. Mar. 14 & Wed. Mar. 15, 9:30am & 11am - runtime: 50 min. Thu. Mar. 16, 7pm – runtime: 90 min In 1955 a 14-year-old black Chicago youth traveled to the Mississippi Delta with country kinfolk and southern cooking on his mind. He walked off the train into a world he could never understand – a world of thick color lines, of hard-held class systems and unspeakable taboos. Young Emmett crossed that line and stepped into his gruesome fate by whistling at a white woman. Written and performed by Mike Wiley, this riveting one-actor play chronicles the murder, trial and unbelievable confession of the men accused of Till’s lynching. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. Presented in Stage II. Grades: 8 and up. Tickets: All Seats $15 ($5 Student). A $4 handling fee per order applies in person, online, or by phone. Artists, programs and pricing are subject to change without notice. All sales are final, no refunds.
