County Convention Reminder
November 23, 6:00 p.m.
The WCDP will hold its Fall County Convention on Monday, November 23 at 6 p.m. via Zoom. The primary purpose of this convention will be the selection of County Committee members. For more event details, including a registration link, view the official Call to Convention here.
Also, the WCDP recently sent out a helpful informational email about the County Convention. In case you missed it, that email is viewable here. There is one mistake that a dutiful reader pointed out: Under “What happens at the convention?” it should say “County Committee” instead of “Executive Board” in reference to automatic members. (That mistake was totally included on purpose to see if y’all actually read these emails.)
Office Closed for 2020
In accordance with public health directives, our WCDP office will be closed through the end of 2020. Please call us at (734) 879-0556 and leave a message. We will try to return your call within 24 hours. If you would like a Black Lives Matter sign, we can coordinate a way to get it to you.
Michigan Democrats: Georgia Needs You!
On January 5, Georgia voters will return to the polls for a run-off election for both of their Senators. If Democratic candidates Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff both win, Democrats will hold the Senate majority and can enact the policies of Biden/Harris. If Republicans retain the majority, it will be very hard to pass meaningful legislation. To find out how you can help, visit our website.

Dr. Alexander Barron presents: Near Term to Net Zero
December 2, 8:00 p.m.
Economists widely agree that putting a price on fossil fuels is the most effective tool for reducing carbon emissions. But what level of carbon price is needed to reduce carbon emissions fast enough to prevent catastrophic climate change?
Prof. Alexander R. Barron will present a new method he and colleagues have developed to calculate the necessary carbon price. Their work was recently published in the paper “A near-term to net zero alternative to the social cost of carbon for setting carbon prices,” N. Kaufman, A. Barron, W. Krawczyk, P. Marsters and H. McJeon, Nature Climate Change. For details and registration visit tiny.cc/NT2NZ.
