Access to a job, to food, to education, to worship and to play should be considered human rights. However, these rights can be denied without access to affordable transportation. Hear Kristen Milefchik, a young social worker who was voted Miss Wheelchair 2015. She lives in Clarkston, a community that does NOT have access to public transportation. And she's doing something about it! Kristen is speaking to community groups as part of a team of volunteers with Transportation Riders United (TRU) to listen to what the public has to say about the need for mass transit and discuss how we can move elected officials to create more justice through access to transportation for all SEM residents. Instead of collecting signatures to put a mass transit proposal on the ballot in 2018, per Kristen, TRU hopes to convince the big four County Executives to give the people a chance to VOTE for mass transit. Come, ask questions and get ready to advocate for more justice for all by hearing Kristen on January 20th. This presentation is being hosted by Gray Panthers of Metro Detroit at its monthly meeting.

The politicians, commentators, and businessmen dare to say, "Detroit is coming back." Whose Detroit? Downtown & stadiums, sure. But what about OUR schools, cheated for funds? What about OUR homes, stolen from us by fraudulent mortgages and tax foreclosures? What about real estate taxes, water rates and car insurance that everyday people pay? Highest in the country! Ordinary neighborhoods are being emptied out -- so the rich can fatten themselves.
