***Real Date TBA: We've currently listed the date of the event as August 31 in order to keep this event active as we continue to demand more information and transparency from the UM administration*** Richard Spencer has invited himself to speak at the University of Michigan. We have preemptively created this protest event to get people thinking about what they will be doing when a prominent white supremacist and his supporters arrive on campus and in our community. To be clear, Richard Spencer's request to speak at UM has still not been confirmed. The administration has until December 8 to confirm or deny Spencer’s request for space before the National Policy Institute sues the University (https://tinyurl.com/ybqg7en6). We believe the administration has already decided to grant him space on campus, and will give very short notice of what day he will be speaking. We support a diversity of tactics being used against Spencer. We are not interested in telling people what to do on this day, nor do we see it as our role to do so. #StopSpencer is not planning any official protest or event. We hope to use this platform to spread information and resources to those planning to protest Richard Spencer’s visit. It is our intention that these resources prepare people to keep themselves and their communities safe, no matter how they decide to protest Spencer. Safety is our primary concern. Any form of protest that does not center the needs and well-being of marginalized people is not one that will be effective in protesting Spencer, who will be targeting those same folx. We call on you to critically reflect on your actions, and what groups you choose to work with, in order to understand the potential impacts (harmful or not) on others. The fight against white supremacy, racism, police violence, Islamophobia and antisemitism is ongoing work. Richard Spencer’s visit is merely a symptom of the white supremacy that is institutionalized in this University, our local government, and local and state police forces (ie the Ann Arbor Police Department). We condemn the history of collaboration between white supremacists and police, which specifically occurred in the 80s and 90s in Ann Arbor. We ask that you acknowledge the legacy of local resistance, and lend your resources to groups already involved in the fight against white supremacy. We encourage you to leverage your privilege, power, or capacity to take collective action against Spencer in any way you are able. We believe it is imperative to dismantle white supremacy in all its forms. In solidarity, Stop Spencer at the University of Michigan https://www.facebook.com/events/123095471807913/

Intersectional feminist from various groups around metro Detroit will be hosting this event. ***Disclamer****** This is for prevention and support. Please report sexual assaults to your local police department . We are not able to help with current issues the focus on the event is for prevention and continued survivor support. Also refer to Sasha Detroit, WC Safe, Haven are all local resources to seek current help. Thank you. ****** In response to the Brock Turner, Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby and current President the SlutWalk was born and continues to grow. In Detroit we have had ENOUGH of victim blaming, of slut-shaming, sexual profiling and policing. We want to smash patriarchy! Consent is mandatory! No means No. Silence is not permission. Women's wardrobe no matter how revealing is not consent or asking for it. We stand together to say "slut" does not have to be accepted as a word used against us to harm us but we have a stake in the language used to describe us, it is something we can challenge, it can be stripped of it's power. This event is a completely inclusive space. This event has zero tolerance for hateful language, racism , ableism, fat-shaming, transphobia, xenophobia or any other form of bigotry. Furthermore, we recognize that shaming, oppression, assault, and violence have disproportionately impacted marginalized groups, including women of color and transgender people thus, we are actively working to center these groups at our event. We deeply value the voices of marginalized groups and have a strong desire to find a common ground amount all of our intersections. No more sexual violence No more victim blaming No more derogatory labels No more gender inequality Details to be announced 🔊 Announcers: Jennifer V.
