Gearing up to fight anti-union, racist, and pro big business right-wing policies
Michigan United, “Stand Together” press conference, November 14, 2016.

DETROIT—Michigan readers and supporters of the Peoples World are gearing up to join the major battles against the threatened onslaught of anti-union, racist, and pro big business right wing policies of the new President, Congress, and the Supreme Court in the coming year.

Progressive activists and community leaders will come together on January 8th to discuss “where do go from here.” This dialogue of community activists will strategize to encourage mass united action in the coming months.

Featured panelists include John Bachtell, Chair of the Community Party, USA; Millie Hall, President, Metro Detroit CLUW (Coalition of Union Women); and Scott Holiday, Lead Organizer of Michigan United and Trustee Elect for Wayne County Community College.

Millie Hall states, “CLUW was founded in 1974 and now, more than ever, we feel the need to unify and develop action programs to deal effectively with the anticipated attacks on all of our rights, human, civil and Constitutional Rights and create more paths to equal pay, empowerment and advancement of women.”

The Peoples World is sponsoring this dialogue of community leaders amid the growing numbers of Michigan unions, women’s groups, students and churches representing millions of working families of all racial and ethnic background who are voicing concern about their future under the new administration.

The event will take place January 8, 2017 at Swords Into Plowshares, a local peace center and gallery, 33 E. Adams, Detroit, at 2:30 p.m.
