We will be joining forces with the March on Lansing event (www.marchonlansing.org) that is happening at the capitol from 1-3pm. After the rally, we will take that energy, and direct it into action! The rally will be led by many progressive leaders throughout the state, including Gretchen Whitmer, who will share with us the best ways to get involved and take action! Admission is free, but we are asking for a $10 donation per ticket (and if you are able to give more, please do so, and help cover someone who can't contribute financially.) All donations go to covering the cost of the event. https://www.facebook.com/events/101024510384718/

Too often, we never see or hear from a representative once they get elected. Capitol Day 2015 is an opportunity for Michigan people to speak directly with our elected representatives about the issues that affect us the most: Fair Elections & Non-Partisan Redistricting Mass Incarceration & Police Accountability Keeping our Families Together Women's Economic Justice F.A.Q's: What are the legislative meetings like? You will be placed on a team with other residents from your district, who also care deeply about these issues. In the afternoon, we will meet with representatives from across Michigan to show them that we are paying attention to politics and it's time for them to represent the people. Never talked with your representative before? Not to worry! We will train everyone attending a legislature meeting prior to May 19th, so you'll feel confident in your ability to convey your story and your point of view. Who are my representatives?
