THE DETROIT COOPERATIVE COMMUNITY POTLUCK!! Date – Wednesday, May 27, 2015 Time- 6:30 pm Location: UAW Vote Center 15140 Livernois Ave, Detroit. Lisa Stolarski will talk about A Discussion Course on Cooperatives: A Manual for Community Self-Directed Education. This anthology-type volume was assembled in 2007 by people involved in food co-ops for the purpose of providing a window into the broader cooperative movement. A Discussion Course won an award by the Association of Cooperative Educators (ACE) in 2008 for Best New Co-op Curriculum. Lisa will lead a review of A Discussion Course on Co-ops at the ACE Institute this July to generate ideas for a possible second edition.

Everyone is invited who is doing or is interested in doing this kind of community-building. As we get to know each other, we may foster relationships that will enhance our various respective projects and create the possibility for future new-economy collaborations.

If you have more money than time, stop at your favorite deli or restaurant and bring their best edibles. No time and a little money? Stop by your favorite store and pick up your favorite munchies (bag of chips, cookies or whatever). No money or time? Just bring yourself - your presence is a cherished gift.

While Jobs with Justice revs up its "Full Employment/Green Jobs" Campaign to create jobs in Detroit, particularly ones that are healthy for workers, communities and the planet, so people can afford to stay in their homes, we need first to stop the unnecessary and destructive policy of mass evictions. The attachments explain why a moratorium on evictions makes good economic, social and moral sense. Detroit Eviction Defense needs the endorsement of your local union, community group or faith-based organization. Please send your endorsement by email to William Bryce, williamabryce@att.net Thank you for taking action to save Detroit by saving Detroiters' homes. What is the Law?

We deeply regret that some people that come to the February potluck at the Church of Messiah could not get in because the door was locked and no one answered. We apologize and we will be taking steps to correct this unfortunate miss hap. We began the February potluck with introductions and we followed by a discussion about the consumer food cooperative coming to the north end of Detroit. Halima Cassells and Robert Mombera from Detroit Black Food Security Network described their progress in making this food cooperative a reality, they also answered many question some people had. We also discussed what we should do at the next potluck. Alex Moore volunteered to run an icebreaker activity at the March potluck. Halima Cassells agreed to create a monkey survey to go out to all participants asking what most interests them. Survey result will be used to guide what we do for future potluck. Please take the time to take the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ZV65ZJY We hope future potluck will reflect the wishes of those attending.
