Starting with the understanding that the primary violence in our world is structural and expressed in systems of oppression, the training will invite participants to learn and practice a variety of active nonviolence skills, including strategies to challenge and interrupt the intimidation and harassment that have escalated since the election. The training will also explore the efficacy of peace teams, offering those who complete the training opportunities to join MPT domestic peace teams and apply to serve on international teams

An alliance of individuals, groups, organizing efforts, political projects, and campaigns engaged in amping up prisoner support and anti-prison/anti-police work in Michigan. All are welcome (except cops and other enforcers of the incarceral state), children included, with a special encouragement to those formerly imprisoned and people who have loved ones behind bars. Typically, we do a go-around to share updates and "asks" from existing projects, campaigns, and groups; put out ideas or calls for new projects, campaigns, or groups; offer resources, educational materials, and news about prisoner solidarity and prison abolition; announce upcoming events; and hopefully, as time goes on, learn from and better get to know each other. If you'd like to get on our e-mail list, which includes minutes, announcements, and information, please private message us your e-mail address -- and/or "like" this page to get updates from time to time. St. Peter's is kindly loaning us a meeting space, but asked that we pass the hat for donations toward sustaining this fantastic community-oriented space. Wheelchair accessible, though a ramp needs to be put out, so please PM in advance so we can prepare. Please share this event page widely and invite others! #UntilEveryCageIsEmpty #UntilAllAreFree #Solidarity #Abolition https://www.facebook.com/events/218923561865773/

For the third time since a spirited noise demo in downtown Detroit on September 9 -- in solidarity with a nationwide prisoner strike on the 45th anniversary of Attica -- folks are meeting to amp up prisoner support and anti-prison/anti-police work in Michigan. All are welcome (except cops and other enforcers of the incarceral society), children included, with a special encouragement to those formerly imprisoned and people who have loved ones behind bars. On October 11, among other things, we will: 1. Write letters to prisoners currently resisting within various Michigan facilities (30 minutes). 2. Get an update on the proposed new Wayne County Jail and hear about three "no new jail" campaigns in other cities as a basis to potentially launch a similar campaign here (30 minutes). 3. Touch base on the Wed., Oct. 12 "Can't Cage Our Humanity Rally in Solidarity with LGBTQ Prisoners" noon to 1 pm, outside MDOC headquarters in Lansing, especially carpooling the next morning (gather at 9 a.m.; leave at 9:30 a.m.) from St. Peter's parking lot (15 minutes). For more info on the rally and to invite friends, see https://www.facebook.com/events/1781186232150682/. 4. Discuss alternative meeting days/times and continued outreach to those most impacted by the prison-industrial system (15 minutes). If you'd like to get on our e-mail list, which will include minutes from these still-informal meetings, please private message us your e-mail address -- and/or "like" the No New Jails, No Old Jails page to get updates from time to time. St. Peter's is kindly loaning us a meeting space, but asked that we pass the hat for donations toward sustaining this fantastic community-oriented space.

Please join us at St Peter's Church. 1950 Trumbull , as we discuss how to effectively support prisoners in a brief workshop, and help us to write those behind bars in Michigan. The Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee was formed in 2015 by prisoners who wish to end the unjust forced labor pratices and have formed a union to end their exploitation. We can support prisoners by writing them to let them- and the world know, we haven't forgotten about them. If you would like to be more involved, please consider being a full time IWOC member, and commit your time and energy to this cause. https://iwoc.noblogs.org/- This event is co-hosted and supported by our friends ABC Detroit, Black and Pink, First of May Anarchist Alliance and IWW Detroit GMB. Please bring stationary , letters , pens & markers. https://www.facebook.com/events/1796876917224078/

The Detroit Narrative Agency is an initiative that aims to change the stories that form the future of this city. We are a group of Detroiters who understand that the DNA of of this city is made up of many stories, and who seek to shift the stories that are currently being told in and of Detroit towards justice. Join us on Wednesday April 13th for our first public forum! We are excited to begin cultivating moving image projects (film, video installation, emerging multimedia forms, etc.) in and of Detroit. This May we will launch a grant application to provide seed grants of $5,000 - $10,000 to artists and community members who want to shift the narratives of Detroit. What stories are you sick of hearing about Detroit? What stories do you want to uplift about Detroit? At the forum we will collectively brainstorm stories we want to shift and challenge, and stories we hope to see uplifted about Detroit. Through this forum we invite you to help shape the priorities of this initiative with your ideas for film and other moving image projects. We welcome people of all disciplines and backgrounds - whether you’re an artist, community organizer, media-maker, community member, lifelong or longtime Detroiter, join us to help shape the narratives we tell about Detroit! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
