Our UCA Jesuit Martyrs Fundraiser dinner will be held Monday evening, March 20, from 6:30 to 9 pm in the Ballroom. Music begins at 6:45, provided by Ismael Duran, an accomplished Chilean guitarist and singer/songwriter. Our dinner will feature pupusas from from El Catracho Central American Restaurant. Our two keynote speakers are flying in from El Salvador for this event. Kevin Yonkers-Talz is the director of Casa de la Solidaridad, which is an academic, praxis-based study abroad program offered by Santa Clara University, based at the Jesuit-run Central American University in El Salvador. He will be joined by Julio Perez, Program Coordinator for the Romero Program. Both have been good friends to Dean Brackley, S.J., the Jesuit who helped to found the Casa program and who promoted the UCA Martyrs Scholarship Program, a fund that helps poor Salvadoran students to attend the UCA. Family members of Dean Brackley including his sister (Jane), brother (Richard) and sister in law (Laura) will be with us. Attendance is free for Detroit Mercy students. Others are asked to donate $10-$50 per ticket, with all proceeds going to the scholarship fund. Checks for this dinner can be made to "Jesuits USA - Central and Southern Province" with "UCA Scholarship Fund" in the memo. RSVP by contacting Anita Klueg, Director of University Ministry, at 313-993-1560 or by writing to . CLASA thanks our co-sponsors University Ministry, Jesuit Community at UDM, HASA, and Gesu Peace and Justice Committee.

he Voters Not Politicians ballot committee and grassroots organization Count MI Vote are co-hosting Redistricting Reform Town Halls across Michigan, and we're holding one in Troy! This is an opportunity for voters to learn about gerrymandering and discuss policy options. 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 draft a petition 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 selecting "Going". **PLEASE NOTE: Response to this event has been amazing! We expect to reach capacity quickly, and seating is first-come first-served, so please arrive early in order to ensure you get a seat. We are working around the clock to schedule additional events for the Detroit metro, in order to provide you with more opportunities to attend. Stay tuned!** 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/
