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.
You are invited to attend any WeRoc meetings to just listen in or participate in this dynamic community movement. We would love to have more EMUFT members involved in good work that WeRoc is doing in Washtenaw County.
WeRoc General meetings are help on the first Thursday of every month, 5:30-7:15pm at different locations. Watch the EMUFT Facebook page for up-to-date details (https://www.facebook.com/EMUFederationOfTeachers).
During August, September, and October Planning meetings for a large community event in November will take place on every 3rd Thursday at 6pm at different locations. Watch the EMUFT Facebook page for up-to-date details (https://www.facebook.com/EMUFederationOfTeachers).
