While the rest of the city will be celebrating American freedom, Detroit youth 17 and under will have to be on lockdown in their houses starting at 6 p.m. June 22 (Fireworks Night) and at 8 pm June 19-22 (River Days). In 2012-2014, similar ordinances allowed police to harass, handcuff, fine, and detain hundreds of youth just because they were outside on a long summer night. This year’s proposed ordinance: will last for four days (June 19-22). On Fireworks night, the curfew is citywide and will even apply to young people who live miles away from the riverfront makes it illegal for youth to leave their houses without a responsible adult, or detailed, written documentation What you can do to stop this: Attend the public hearing on Tuesday, June 16 at 2 p.m. to make a public comment or to help show your opposition to this unconstitutional ordinance. Call your Detroit City Council members and tell them not to enact this unprecedented, unconstitutional ordinance that stereotypes and criminalizes Detroit youth and turns the city into a police state. Updates and contact information available at: Councilwoman Ayers (at-large): (313) 224-4248 Councilman Leland (Dist. 7): (313) 224-2151 Councilman Spivey (Dist. 4): (313) 224-4841 Councilman Benson (Dist. 3): (313) 224-1198 Council President Jones (at-large): (313) 224-1245 Councilwoman Sheffield (Dist. 5): (313) 224-4505 Councilman Cushingberry (Dist. 2): (313) 224-4535 Councilman Tate (Dist. 1): (313) 224-1027 Councilwoman Castañeda-López (Dist. 6) (313) 224-2450

(This event is also called the Stop Boko Haram Rally) The recent attack in Paris left 12 dead. The whole world mourned this terrible tragedy, yet the corporate media paid little attention to the 2,000 innocent Nigerians who were also killed in a recent attack. While the racist cartoons of Charlie Hebdo and the racist policies of the French government get overlooked, mass anti-Muslim and anti-Arab hysteria is reaching a boiling point. Meanwhile, people of color continue to get gunned down like dogs with no consequences in the U.S. Also, right here in Detroit, 60,000 homes are on the brink of foreclosure and people continue to get their water shut off! Let's come together to fight the corporate brutalization of humanity and demand peace and justice for people around the world! -There will also be a meeting after the event (see middle link) -Text "@BLMDetroit" to 23559 on your cell phone. Each Saturday, you will receive a test of the Emergency Justice Alert System. In the event that the grand jury has made a decision in the Tamir Rice case, you will be the first to know and given specific instructions for an effective response.

Council Meets on CBA Ordinance Nov 14th, 9am CAYMC More Info: http://equitabledetroit.org – http://detroitpeoplesplatform.org November 12th 2014 Detroit People’s Platform Action Alert THIS FRIDAY! People’s Platform Members and supporters, IT’S TIME TO FILL THE 13TH FLOOR Attend Council’s Committee of the whole meeting on the COMMUNITY BENEFITS AGREEMENT ORDINANCE FRIDAY NOV. 14th 9am for a comment card13th Floor, CAYMC If you cannot join us Friday please CONTACT COUNCIL! District contact info below More Info: http://equitabledetroit.org – http://detroitpeoplesplatform.org YES! CBA Ordinance! The Community Benefits Agreement Ordinance will benefit Developers, Investors and life-long, returning and new residents by streamlining a community engagement process and increasing transparency and consistency. The CBA Ordinance will amend the City Charter and will support meaningful community engagement and benefit into post-bankruptcy Detroit’s future. READ: This recent Crain’s Business Detroit article by Ken Harris, president and CEO of the Michigan Black Chamber of Commerce, supporting the CBA Ordinance: “Community Benefits Agreements would boost neighborhoods, small businesses. More than 82.7 percent African-Americans and 32,490 black-owned businesses, have largely been ignored for any economic opportunities, resources and benefits.” Reasons to Support the Community Benefits Agreement Ordinance 3000 Detroiters have signed the petition calling for a strong and enforceable Community Benefit Agreement ordinance and the number of signatures is growing. Detroiters deserve the type of economic development where all Detroiters benefit not just a few wealthy individuals and big corporations. When our tax dollars and public lands are used to benefit private investments, Detroiters deserve a strong and enforceable Community Benefit Agreement ordinance on the books to protect our interest.
