The debate over healthcare is ON! With the recent passage of The American Health Care Act (AHCH) by the House and the Act's uncertain fate in the Senate, now is a great time to learn more about the issues and how to influence the outcome. The discussion will be led by Marianne Udow-Phillips, Executive Director of the Center for Healthcare Research & Transformation and a Health Management & Policy Lecturer in the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan.

Join the Detroit Democratic Socialists of America chapter for our first-ever book club discussion! We'll be discussing "The New Jim Crow" at Red Door Digital in Detroit. FREE ELECTRONIC COPY OF BOOK (for educational purposes only) https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B_akx02w9nqDaHVfeXNidFI2ZnM BOOK TRAILER: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWvEfg8bVB4 PURCHASE BOOK: http://newjimcrow.com/about/buy The New Jim Crow is a stunning account of the rebirth of a caste-like system in the United States, one that has resulted in millions of African Americans locked behind bars and then relegated to a permanent second-class status—denied the very rights supposedly won in the Civil Rights Movement. Since its publication in 2010, the book has appeared on the New York Times bestseller list for more than a year; been dubbed the “secular bible of a new social movement” by numerous commentators, including Cornel West; and has led to consciousness-raising efforts in universities, churches, community centers, re-entry centers, and prisons nationwide. The New Jim Crow tells a truth our nation has been reluctant to face.

Join No Space for Hate for the next installment of Let’s Talk, community education workshops to address topics of discrimination. How do we have difficult conversations with people with whom we disagree on these issues? Together, we’ll explore civil discourse in uncivil times. Dr. Kevin Deegan-Krause, Associate Professor of Political Science at Wayne State University, and Sarah Eisenberg, LMSW and Women’s March Michigan Organizer, will lead a community discussion on how to communicate across political divides. Whether you want to engage with your community through activism or just with your friends and family for stronger connections, we’ll empower you with skills for identifying values, confronting your own bias, avoiding being defensive, listening to understand, and more. The program will begin promptly at 7 PM. Please arrive early to register and learn more about No Space for Hate and our collaborating groups.
