To make sense of present day Detroit, it helps to know how we've gotten here. For the August meeting of the Detroit Jacobin Reading Group, we will be joined by Dr. Peter Hammer, Director of the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights at Wayne State, who will present on the evolution of spatial racism in Detroit and our region. Dr. Hammer explores how the geography of our city and region have laid the groundwork for many of the issues we face today. His mapping and analysis can help us address the challenges of remaking our city for all citizens - especially those who have been here for decades. We will meet in the Old Fine Arts Room on the third floor of the Detroit Public Library, Main Branch. The following readings are available for those looking to get a bit of additional background on the issues that will be covered in the presentation. It's also possible that some people might have a lot of interest in the subject but not a lot of time to do the readings, in which case we would still love to have you at the presentation on Tuesday. Hammer, Peter J.

Kopacz Regarding the Feasibility of the City of Detroit Plan of Adjustment." https://law.wayne.edu/journal-of-law-society/letter_to_rhodes_hammerfinal_.pdf

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/
