We OPPOSE tax breaks to the 1% on the backs of poor, working families. We want health care that works for all of us. Meet us at 12:15 p.m. at Hart Plaza.

It's time for Michigan progressives to come together and unite as a common force for justice in our state and communities - come be part of the conversation to make that happen! This will be an opportunity for progressive activists to come together and discuss the challenges and opportunities facing us in the new year, as well as ways in which we can partner together to become more effective as a force for justice in our communities and state. Now, more than ever, it is essential that we work together to speak with a common voice and act with common purpose, and that progressives have a forum to meet in which such coordination can be discussed.
