Please register for the forum or confirm your attendance via email to Kelly Karll karll@semcog.org. The Water Resources Plan for Southeast Michigan has been under development since April 2016 with a targeted completion of March 2018. The Task Force is now focusing on the region’s infrastructure, with drinking water as a top priority. The Drinking Water Forum will include an opportunity to bring forward regional priorities to support and work towards a sustainable infrastructure system. Additionally, SEMCOG has been selected as a pilot area by the Governor’s office to develop a pilot Regional Asset Management program. Drinking water systems are a major component of this pilot project. Forum topics will include: • Role of Drinking Water in the Pilot Asset Management Program • Strategic Investments / Disinvestments • Funding and Collaboration • Workforce Development • Public Education • Legislative and Regulatory Challenges The demographic and economic changes that have taken place in Southeast Michigan over the last decade, combined with the aging of the infrastructure system and the decline in available revenue to maintain it, have led to significant infrastructure challenges in our region. This drinking water forum will direct development of SEMCOG’s policies guiding our legislative efforts and work with our members. A meeting agenda will be available by the end of May.

Speaker and writer Robert Weir will share a powerful experience at the June Citizens for Peace meeting! The issues of the Civil Rights Movement have not gone away but have manifested as Human Rights issues that affect all Americans today. Thus, The March Continues! The parallels between then and now include: • Segregation then, Marginalization and Deportation now • Poll Taxes then, Legislative Disenfranchisement now • Lynchings/Beatings then, Hate Crimes now Robert’s extremely emotional presentation, which is based on his Living Legacy Pilgrimage into the Land of Slavery, will reveal how and why resilience and inspiration prevails in spite of colorism, racism, and systemic white supremacy.

On Juneteenth 2017 (Monday, June 19th) Black people across the country will be taking back land and reclaiming space, from vacant lots to empty school buildings. We are taking back land that should be used for the good of the people; land that has historically been denied access to Black people. Through these actions, we will confront the institutions that have been built off the extracted wealth of Black bodies and Black land and the individuals who have profited from them.

Water is a human right not a corporate right. Michigan holds 20% percent of the worlds fresh water yet someone homes in Detroit are without. People are being bullied out of their homes by the government and denied basic human rights. The media is ignoring this. So we want to present a demonstration to highlight the injustice that families in Detroit are facing. Dress in bathrobes, towels we are gonna hunt the streets of Detroit establishing places for people to wash themselves up since they are being forced from their own homes.
