The People’s Platform & Convention – June 1st – Marygrove College


The People’s Platform & Convention

Saturday, June 1st 2013, 9am – 4pm

Marygrove College

Lets come together and

  • share our experiences
  • deepen our understanding about the issues
  • acknowledge our collective power
  • affirm a common vision for action.

The People’s Platform is a broad network of Detroit-based social justice organizations, activists, and residents committed to bringing about just transformation in politics, economics and social dynamics through popular education, celebration, and civic engagement. We use data, analysis, advocacy and community organizing to protect and increase participation in the democratic process and to demand that state and local decision makers consider race and economic justice in their planning, funding, and policy-making decisions.

We believe that Detroit is full of vibrant, resilient people who look out for each other and are committed to protecting the public assets and resources we share as a community. Lets roll up our sleeves and come together and plan to take back our democracy. Come with your neighbors; bring block club members, friends and family.
