It’s been appalling to watch the voice of the people get squashed by outgoing legislatures across the midwest. It was important to find an organization in Michigan focused on restoring civil rights. Michigan United is made up “of churches, labor, and community groups to ensure that our economy works for the many, our civil rights are protected, and our democracy is strong.”
Michigan United is a statewide organization of community members and institutions fighting for the dignity and potential of every person. We are committed to a participatory democracy at every level, an economy that works for the many, and a society that dismantles racism while uplifting our common humanity. To ignite the power of our communities and shift the balance of power, we cultivate the leadership of those directly affected by injustice, and build popular institutions for the future.
I am happy to support them with a donation and to learn more about their work.
