@Riverview Public Library
Join us for the launch of our Universal Family Care campaign in Downriver! U.S. Rep. Dingell and State Rep. Camilleri will speak on the issue of family care & how important access to care is for all michigan families. Refreshments will be served. Why We Are Fighting for Universal Family Care: We want to create a broad-based benefit that directly addresses the costs of child and elder care. We should be able to do something meaningful and substantial for families. This benefit will be universal, helping families from low-income and middle-class backgrounds, young people, and seniors. Components of Universal Family Care: 1. Universal childcare. Every child who is four-years-old and under will have access to childcare. 2. Support for stay-at-home parents. For families where someone stays at home to raise their children, they will receive a benefit equivalent to the cost of child care (about $10,000 a year). 3. Universal home care for seniors and people with disabilities. Similar to the child care policy, every family that needs home care will receive the resources from the state to provide it. When family members can appropriately provide care, they will receive a benefit equivalent to the cost of that care from the state, without compromising their qualification for existing benefits programs. 4. Workforce standards. Reimbursement rates to workers should be set high enough to provide a living wage. Collective bargaining rights and paid leave should be included for workers as well. People caring for the loved ones of others should be able to afford to care for their own families. 5. Paid family leave. Contact Laura De Palma - email@example.com - with any questions!

@St. Francis D'Assisi Catholic Church
Protecting our families is a big part of what we do at Michigan United. Safe neighborhoods and strong families are important for all Michiganders. Today, we are seeing attacks on our families, like the prohibiting of "Sanctuary Cities" or the killing of unarmed African Americans by police, that are making our own neighborhoods less secure. That's why Michigan United holds its annual Statewide Convention - happening this year on October 10th, from 11am - 4pm at St. Francis D'Assisi Catholic Church in Detroit. It gives each of us a chance to appreciate the progress made by our leaders in other campaigns, to encourage them and support their efforts. It also gives us a chance to bring in our elected officials and tell them in one voice, in numbers to powerful to ignore, what we want and what they need to do to protect our families. Take part in creating Michigan's bright future. Sign up NOW for the 2015 Michigan United Statewide Convention. Michigan United will be providing transportation from Kalamazoo. We will also be serving lunch and provide child care for families who attend. Space is limited and registration ends September 23rd, 2015.

@Pleasant Grove Baptist Church
A long campaign to bring civilian control of the Detroit police is coming to a close. The Michigan United’s Detroit Pastoral Alliance for Change (DPAC) met with Detroit city council members and one by one, gotten their commitment in writing to restore the authority of the Board of Police Commissioners. On Tuesday, September 22nd, City Council is expected to vote on a resolution adopting our proposal. So that night, we will come together to declare victory! DPAC invites you to “We Are One”, an opportunity to praise the Lord for our successes this past year and prayers for healing and guidance in the years to come. State Representative Wendell Bird will discuss the Detroit delegation’s resolution in support of our campaign. We’ll hear from our elected police commissioners about what their renewed authority will mean to community policing and what you can do to take advantage of it. And we’ll hear from Black Lives Matter Detroit, an active supporter of our campaign, with an update on their movement and what a responsive police commission can mean to protecting Black lives. “We Are One” will also be an opportunity to take steps to build even stronger ties between the police and the communities they serve. One way is to have officers come from those neighborhoods, so Detroit police recruiters will be on hand to find young men and women interested in a career in law enforcement. So come to Pleasant Grove Missionary Baptist Church Tuesday September 22nd at 6:30PM for “We Are One”. Bring your faith, bring your ideas and bring a young person who is ready to show the Detroit police department how to serve and protect their community.

Northern Borders Conference 2014 Please join the Northern Borders Coalition and stand up for civil rights in border communities. Border Patrol and Field Operations continue to act with unaccountable disregard for basic human rights and civil rights standards. Following our conference in 2012, the Coalition has made real progress: stronger policies against racial and religious profiling, the use of Border Patrol agents as "translators"and the release of important information from DHS. At this year's conference, we will continue the dialogue between Northern and Southern border communities, and discuss the following issues: Campaigns for greater transparency at Customs and Border Protection Reducing injuries or killings by Border Patrol agents through improved 'use of force' standards and great accountability Reducing local law enforcement's role in enforcing immigration law, including eliminating ICE holds and detainers. Addressing surveillance of Muslim, Arab American, and South Asian communities by the Department of Homeland Security How do innocent travelers clear their names and get off the 'no-fly list'? Making greater use of the FOIA process Improving standards for immigrant kept in border detention facilities Addressing the unaccompanied refugee minor crisis Reducing racial and religious profiling Thanks to our premier sponsor: the UNITED AUTO WORKERS!!
