The LP (Lafayette Park) - Indivisible organization is holding a MI House District 6 candidate forum in downtown Detroit on Wednesday, June 6 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm. District 6 is one of the most diverse districts in the state as it encompasses Detroit’s near east side, downtown Detroit (up to MLK Blvd/Mack Ave), Corktown, southwest Detroit, and the nearby suburbs of River Rouge and Ecorse. The district is currently represented by Stephanie Chang (D) who is term limited. Of the ten Democratic candidates running, LP-Indivisible has selected six candidates that it believes represent progressive and activist values. Those candidates are: Tom Choske, Aghogho Edevbie, Samatha Magdaleno, David Sanchez, Richardo White and Charlesetta Wilson. Candidates will have the opportunity to interact with the audience, as well as answer questions posed by LP-Indivisible moderators. The event will be held at the Swords into Plowshares Gallery located on Grand Circus Park at 33 E. Adams. Limited parking is available in the rear of Central Methodist Church behind the gallery. LP-Indivisible is an independent, progressive, and activist organization founded in 2017 to oppose the policies of the Trump administration, and to hold elected officials accountable to their constituents.

On Monday, May 7, we’re gathering to write postcards to our elected officials, socialize, and network. New format for this party: a speed-dating concept where letter writers gather at tables to hear expert-activists talk for a few minutes on different topics, you write your postcards, and the activists move from table to table. We’ll be writing on 4-6 issues, including gun control, the Enbridge Line 5, and the proposed DTE gas plant. Also new: a phone-calling room. We’ll give you phone numbers to call your reps. It may be after office hours, but you can leave a message. Bring your friends and make new ones! We’ll bring pizza, beverages, postcards, and stamps. Bring your own return-address stickers if you have them. PIZZA SERVED 5:30 to 6:30; POSTCARD WRITING BEGINS 6:30.
