WeRoc (the Washtenaw Regional Organizing Coalition) is a coalition of community faith and labor organizations that is doing some exciting things to further social and economic justice in our region. WeROC is working to bring together membership-based community organizations to create a collective voice and impact public affairs and issues in Washtenaw county and across the state.
EMUFT has been a part of this growing movement to increase awareness and create change on a number of issues including:
Ban the (past conviction) Box on employment forms, a variety of local Education issues including promoting programs like Restorative justice instead of suspension, and working for economic dignity for working families.
The next WeROC meeting will be held on Thursday, May 7, 5:45-7:15, at Beth Israel Congregation, Washtenaw Ave, Ann Arbor. The June 4 meeting will be held on the EMU campus in the Student Center room 352. You are invited to attend to just listen in or participate in this dynamic community movement. We would love to have a number of EMUFT members at the meeting to welcome our community partners.
