This is the fifth in a series of forums sponsored by Southeast Michigan Jobs with Justice/Unity Campaign and UAW Region 1A Retired Workers Council. Focusing on the Flint Water and the Detroit Public School crises (both caused by state-appointed Emergency Managers), this forum is aimed at providing union and community activists with powerful strong talking points to help get out the vote when 75% of Americans have lost faith in government. "Government is the tool we can use to build the kind of society we want."

Southeast Michigan Jobs with Justice and UAW Region 1A Retirees Council present the third "Make Government Work" forum. Let's learn how conservative economic policies - based on conservative values of “Limited Government,” “Free Markets,” and “Personal Responsibility” - failed America during the Great Depression of the 1930s…and the Great Recession of 2008. Let's learn the lessons of Roosevelt's New Deal as we brainstorm together on what a new 'New Deal' might look like for today. Progressive values - (1) A Government that serves the Common Good, (2) An economy that profits all the people, and (3) An America that is a Community where we look out for each other - can potentially inspire people to vote and Make Government Work…Again. One-hour PowerPoint history. One-hour small group and large group discussions.

After 50 years of right-wing anti-government messaging and anti-government governing, it's no surprise that 75% of Americans today distrust government. Yet government is the tool we must use to build the kind of society we want. In this second "Make Government Work" Forum, we will learn from others who grew up Canada,England and other industrial democracies that are similar to ours economically, but worlds apart politically and social justice-wise. Panelists from Canada, England and other major industrial nations will talk about how their governments work and what their citizens think about government. Most U.S. citizens don't trust government, don't believe it will ever help people like them, fall back on individualistic solutions and don't get involved in politics. Location: Marygrove College, Madame Cadillac Building, 8425 W. McNichols, Detroit. Sponsored by: Southeast Michigan Jobs with Justice and UAW Region 1 Retirees Council.

Moo Cluck Moo
Paying their workers $15 an hour is already a good reason to buy your next chemically-free moo burger or notorious cluck sandwich from Moo Cluck Moo. Now, even better, you can help a socially-responsible company do well and possibly help a social justice organization continue to do good. From now until April 27, 2014 when you're done making your purchase of a flash fried cluck or a grilled cluck sandwich with sea salt french fries or veggie salad and a high-fructose-free Northwoods soda pop (all for just $5.00) at MCM on Sundays, tell the clerk you are with Jobs with Justice. The top five organizations with the most Sunday Chicken visits will receive a $200 donation from the only fast-food restaurant (so far) that pays its workers a living wage and cares for the community.
