Modern slavery is real, and as the church, we are being called to say, “No more!” Today, there are millions of children, women, and men who are being forced to do unthinkable things through human trafficking — both around the world and in your backyard. As the church, we are called to take a stand and provide hopeful alternatives to this oppression. On February 14, 2015, churches around the world are showing God’s love by standing united against modern slavery by participating in Freedom Sunday. Will you join the movement? SIGN UP TO PARTICIPATE (http://fulfillment.ncm.org/view.php?id=10) FREEDOM SUNDAY is a day to unite with other churches; participate through prayer and support of church-based anti-trafficking ministries; and celebrate what God is doing to set the captives free.

Hear Al Cholger, United Steelworkers of America (USW) District 2 Sub-district Director (SE Michigan) and Civil and Human Rights Coordinator, talk about the dangers of the TPP. Please sign in and share: https://www.facebook.com/events/980492978679127/ The Detroit Light Brigade is teaming up with Michigan Coalition for Human Rights to shine some light on the TPP after this event! Detroit is joining the rest of the world in saying NO TPP! NO TOXIC TRADE DEALS! Immediatly following the event at Swords Into Plowshares, WE take ACTION! Fight with light! WE will be walking to a nearby overpass to say STOP THE TPP! Dress warm and parking is free! Here’s what people are saying about the TPP: Leo Gerard, President, USW: “This is a prescription for disaster.” Ralph Nader, Consumer Advocate: “The most brazen corporate power grab in American history”. Michael Brune, Sierra Club: “The Trans-Pacific Partnership would empower big polluters to challenge climate and environmental safeguards in private trade courts and would expand trade in dangerous fossil fuels that would increase fracking and imperil our climate.” Bernie Sanders, Senator: “Bad trade deals like the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership are a major reason for the collapse of the American middle class and the increase in wealth and income inequality in the United States.” Keith Ellison, Congressman: “I’m not against trade…but they’re not really trade deals. They’re really investment deals between international corporations…They’re saying we want to get a race to the bottom so we can exploit the most unfortunate worker.” WE MUST stop the Trans Pacific Partnership! http://www.facebook.com/events/980492978679127/

When members of Congress return to Washington DC after Labor Day, they will vote on whether to send us down the path of peace and diplomacy or the path of continuing hostility. We will urge Senator Gary Peters and his colleagues down the right path. Meet in front of the Swords into Plowshares Gallery and Peace Center for brief speeches and some serious photo ops. At 8:00 pm or so we cross Woodward to the west side of Grand Circus Park where we join with the Cities of Peace Detroit and the Detroit Light Brigade to create an iconic photo for peace. Vigilers will be asked to post photos to Facebook, as well as email and tweet photos to Senator Peters (@SenGaryPeters) and his colleagues. Bring a camera, if you have one. Otherwise, we'll share photos you can send. Tweet to #IranDeal and #IranDealYES NOTE: This vigil is one of over 140 being held across the country in support of the Iran deal. MoveOn.org and its national partners are promoting the vigils. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> "They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks.

Please set this date and time aside to join in on a critical New Economy live interview/conversation with economist-activist Keith Harrington: Everyday Revolutionaries (Local Economic Innovators) Can Take Down Corporate Capitalism — But Only With a Common Vision Friday, July 24th, noon to 2pm Pacific (3pm-5pm Eastern) -- on Reddit.com If you're not familiar, the popular social media and news-sharing site Reddit.com has a terrific platform for live discussions. It's their Ask Me Anything platform. President Obama, Hollywood celebrities, NASA scientists — as well as quirky hobbyists and folks with something interesting to say — have hosted AMAs of their own. The Reddit community is lively — smart, thoughtful, and ready to dig in with challenging questions. You'll need a Reddit login to participate in the AMA with Keith Harrington. Please do consider signing up, and joining us. We need your voice there too! Find details, and reference links, below for this exciting conversation. Planning to join us? Let us know! --------------- Keith Harrington's AMA: "I'm an economist who believes that everyday revolutionaries (local economic innovators) can take down corporate capitalism — but only if they develop a shared vision. Ask me anything." Background: Corporate capitalism continues to dish up fresh crises from financial chaos to growing inequality, high unemployment, and ecological destruction. Meanwhile, everyday revolutionaries are already fighting back, building alternatives in their communities — from credit unions to worker-owned businesses and community wealth-building projects. Together, these democratic, sustainable alternatives could add up to a new system beyond capitalism. But old divisions over revolutionary strategy are holding changemakers back from discovering their true transformative power. I believe the way around this impasse and toward a new system can be found in the methods of jazz improvisation.

Our daughter, Hadiya, was the light of our life -- and she shined even brighter after performing with her marching band at President Obama's inauguration in 2013. We never imagined that one week later, she would be murdered with a gun -- shot at a park near her school in Chicago. Hadiya's high school classmates will be graduating next month. While Hadiya won't get to walk across that stage, her friends are all going to wear orange on June 2 in her honor -- and to inspire action to stop the gun violence that takes too many lives in this country. We're writing to ask for your help. Pledge to wear orange on June 2 and show that you're one of the millions of Americans who believes we must do more to end gun violence in our country. People from all over the country will come together online and in person to declare June 2 National Gun Violence Awareness Day.

APWU members across the country did a great job during our National Day of Action yesterday, which was organized around the theme, “I Stand with Postal Workers.” We demonstrated support for our demands: Good Postal Service! Good Jobs! Good Contract! We held rallies and press conferences and got signatures on postcards bearing our message in more than 100 cities across 45 states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. To see photos, click here. To see press coverage, click here. But our fight isn't over! on Wednesday, May 20 We are asking union members and supporters to show solidarity on May 20 – the day our contract expires – by wearing APWU-themed gear to work. Please wear a union T-shirt, cap, button or sticker. If you can’t get your hands on an APWU item, please wear blue. As the contract clock ticks down, let’s send a message to management that we stand together!
