The Voters Not Politicians ballot committee and grassroots organization Count MI Vote are co-hosting Redistricting Reform Town Halls across Michigan, and we're coming to Howell! This is an opportunity for voters to learn about gerrymandering and discuss solutions. It will start with a fun and engaging introduction to the facts, then move into a discussion to hear from you and your neighbors. Like any good town hall, your ideas and concerns will be heard, your questions answered, and your input used to design change that reflects the will of Michigan voters. Admission is free, and all Michiganders are welcome (including young ones)! However, space is limited, so please reserve your spot by RSVPing on our site or on Facebook. The event will be held in the Howell/Putnam Conference Room. For more information about the Voters Not Politicians ballot committee, please go to http://votersnotpoliticians.com/ For more information about Count MI Vote, please go to http://countmivote.org/

SEMG Membership Meeting Elks Lodge, 2401 E. 4th St., Royal Oak, MI (at corner of 4th St. & SB I-75 Service Drive, South of 11 Mile Rd.) Regular Sierra Club SEMG Membership meeting, 1st Thursday, monthly. This is the follow-up film made by Josh Fox's award-winning documentary feature GASLAND. The new film continues to explore the controversial method of extracting natural gas and oil known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. It shows both how dangerous the practice is and how pervasive the gas industry's influence on public policy has become. Tempered by Fox's trademark dark humor, the film shows how the stakes have been raised on all sides in one of the most divisive environmental issues facing our nation today. Open to the public; any interested person can attend. 6:30-7:00 Snacks, socializing 7:00-7:10 Announcements 7:10 Presentation
