Children’s voices are the forgotten voices. We stand for them but sometimes forget that they can stand for us too. They can’t vote yet but that doesn’t mean that their voices don’t count. Anne Frank wasn’t silent. Malala Yousafzai, Kid President, and countless others are not silent. The youth will have a platform on July 15, 2017 at the National Mall in Washington, DC. Come stand with them. Mission To provide a platform for children and youth to speak about issues that affect their lives, communities, and the world around them. Goal To encourage youth to be civically engaged in their communities and to stand up for their basic human rights. Demand For the United States to ratify the United Nations Convention on the Rights of a Child. •Speaker topics (Including but not limited to) Homelessness Healthcare Hunger Disability Foster Care LGBTQ Child Abuse Literacy After we march there will be youth conventions held across the country where youth can vote for two youth delegates from their state to represent them in DC in the summer.

We know with the GOP proposed healthcare bill, 22 million people would loose their health coverage in the next decade, and this means an earlier death for many. With over 30% of our current health costs going to billing and administrative costs, we know we can do more for the 28 million who are currently uninsured. Also, our country shamefully has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the "developed" nations. I believe we can push our government to better represent and advocate for the majority of people. A national single payer health care option would be the most affordable, effective, and efficient way to ensure that all Americans receive adequate healthcare. https://www.resistandprotest.com/event/michigan-march-medicare-all

We have shirts available impeach 45 at our online store https://teespring.com/impeach-45-april-2017#pid=322&cid=6316&sid=back WHY WE MARCH FOR IMPEACHMENT Donald Trump has been in violation of the Constitution from the day he was sworn into the office of President. We cannot abide a Congress that turns a blind eye to the constitutional breaches of our Commander in Chief. We demand that Congress does its job and commences with impeachment proceedings immediately. GROUNDS FOR IMPEACHMENT President Trump must be impeached under Article II, Section 4 of the United States Constitution for Treason, Bribery, or High Crimes and Misdemeanors, in particular: (1) Obstruction of Justice. Article 2, Section 1.8. of the Constitution Sets forth the oath of office: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will do to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” In his conduct of the Office of President of the United States, Trump in violation of his oath faithfully to execute the Office of President of the Unites States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in his duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has prevented, obstructed, and impeded the administration of justice in that he: 1a.Interfered with the Department of Justice of the United States and Federal Bureau of Investigation by dismissing officers and investigators conducting investigations as to his illegal activities, including Preet Bharara the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Salley Yates, the Deputy and Acting Attorney General of the United States, and James Comey, the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. 1b.Made false and misleading statements the people of the United States to deceive the people that investigations as to his misdeeds and those of his subordinates were and are being conducted thoroughly and completely with regard to his misconduct and the misconduct of his subordinate 1c.Failed to provide information regarding General Flynn’s dealings with the Russians to the House Intelligence Committee. (2) Violation of the Foreign Emoluments Clause Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 [N]o Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign State. The framers of the Constitution created this clause to ensure that US officials would not be corrupted by gifts or payments from foreign powers, yet President Trump receives a constant stream of cash and favors from foreign powers and their agents. Inconsistent with the practice of all modern era Presidents and the expectations of the public, he has refused to place his business assets into a blind trust in which he would have no control over the assets and decision making of his businesses, but instead, directly and/or through his family continues to control his businesses and receive business revenues. The single largest tenant of Trump Tower is the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, a wholly state-owned company. The Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority office holds a lease with Trump Tower. Foreign diplomats and foreign embassy events at Washington’s Trump International Hotel. More than an obvious conflict of interest, receipt of any monies by him or his businesses under his control of him or his family from any foreign government or representative of a foreign government is a present or emolument in direct violation of the United States Constitution. Trump has financial relationships with businesses and governments throughout the world, including Turkey, the Philippines, India, Great Britain, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Brazil, Bulgaria, and Viet Nam. Most importantly, he has financial dealings with Russia and China, the extent of which are largely unknown and will remain so as long as he refuses to release his tax returns as has been done by all modern era Presidents, a promise upon which he reneged. These conflicts of interest have not only enriched Trump, buy have undermined our national security. (3)Violation of the Free speech rights of the citizens and the press. Has denied access to the White House by certain members of the press and publicly villified the press by calling them enemies of the people in violation of the First Amendment Rights of the people and his duty to protect the Constitution of the United States. (4)Treason. Article III, Section 2 of the United States Constitution defines treason in part as giving “Aid and comfort” to our enemies. By condoning hacking by the Russian Government of a major political party and encouraging dissemination of hacked materials for purposes of political gain and by condoning unauthorized, unsecured meetings with Russia and other governments he has breached the security of the United States. (5) Libeled and slandered the former President of the United States with criminal intent. Trump maliciously and intentionally maligned President Obama by accusing the former President of wiretapping him. Making a false allegation of a crime is a crime. (6) Issuance of a travel ban in Violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment, the Establishment Clause of the 1st Amendment and the due process clauses of the fifth and fourteenth amendments. 6a.The order singles out persons because of their religious preference in violation of the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. 6b.Because the order bans individuals from specific Muslim countries, it establishes a religious test in violation of the establishment clause of the First Amendment. 6c.The travel ban gives the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Homeland Security almost unlimited powers without procedural protections in violation of the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments. Donald Trump’s extreme disregard for the Constitution is a profound subversion of the Office of the President. Neither do we feel our country is in safe nor able hands, and we will not quietly ride out a tenure that threatens our democracy and way of life. We demand that Congress stop enabling President Trump through an embarrassing and potentially catastrophic charade of normalcy. The future of American Democracy rests in their hands. CONGRESS: DO YOUR JOB, OR LOSE YOUR JOB. IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP NOW. https://www.facebook.com/events/327181781032106/

The CVA is a 5 decades old community assocaition located on Detroit's East side, and The Brick and Mortar Collective is a group equity housing co-op. The night will feature live musical performances, art from Riopelle Artist Collective, and a bunch of opportunities to learn more about the collective and support our project! The CVA is starting a new community house which will offer inexpensive housing, meeting space, a small library, and one day computing services to community members! Brick and Mortar has been working for over 18 months repairs and rehabbing our future home on Bewick st. and we hold the same vision for our future home! Brick and Mortar needs just $5,000 to complete repairs to curcial systems, that would allow us to move in and ditch landlords forever! The CVA project is at a little bit of a different place, and are just beginning repairs, but they are aiming to raise $15,000 in order to open their doors! https://www.facebook.com/events/115299188986257/
