The local faith, labor, and community organizations of WeROC (Washtenaw Regional Organizing Coalition) invite you to attend a special event Sunday, November 15, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm, in Ypsilanti at Emmanuel Lutheran Church ELCA (210 N River St.)
A broad range of people, united around the basic shared value that “we’re all in this together,” are working to make real changes that improve the lives of everyone in our area. Please come to participate in this effort.
With a commitment of less than 2 hours that day, hundreds of us will be able to signal by our actual presence that we expect our public officials and other decision-makers to take concrete actions on several meaningful issues that the WeROC Action Teams have been busy working on:
- Reducing school suspensions and breaking the school-to prison pipeline.
- Broadening the number of businesses in our area that offer employees earned sick time for themselves or to care for a family member, instead of losing a paycheck or their job.
- Expanding public transit options, locally and between Washtenaw and Detroit.
- Building on the very real public health consequences of our unacceptable level of incarceration, especially as communities of color have been affected.
