Join neighbors and supporters at a free concert to build support for Lela Whitfield’s Defense of her home. With Performances by: Will See Stan Hope Miz Korona Hans Christopher Malik Yakini Rocket McFlyy More artists to be announced! The Detroit Free Press had this to say on Lela’s Fight: “The bungalow has long been occupied by a woman who wants to buy it and fix it up — just the kind of person any neighborhood wants. But any day now, a judge could order her out. Lela Whitfield doesn’t plan on moving. Her mission is to stay rooted to her childhood home on Manistique and to keep trying to buy it. And that has drawn activists, church leaders, lawyers and neighbors, all trying to stop not only her eviction but the incessant tide of foreclosures and evictions across Detroit.” Detroit Eviction Defense & Freedom Farms w: DetroitEvictionDefense.org t: @EvictDefense

Skilled jobs that pay well and are safe are vital to rebuilding Detroit. M&D Enterprises is using out of state labor and what local jobs they do provide pay a measly $10 an hour. We need companies that care about our communities and the people in it! We are standing with Iron Workers Local 25 in their struggles for union jobs and safe working conditions.

Please join us in standing with our brothers and sisters from the Iron Workers and Electrical Workers. We will meet at 7115 S. Miller St, Detroit MI 48211 (this is not an exact address, look for the ralliers) between 7 a.m. and 12 p.m. We will not stand for companies using non-union and unskilled labor in their projects. The company is hiring people off the street and paying them $10 an hour. This is going to lead to poor work quality and dangerous working conditions. We will not stand for this! Food and Beverages will be provided.
