The WCDP has a new Slack workspace, and you’re invited. Slack is one of the most popular platforms used by businesses and organizations to work, collaborate, and communicate. If you are new to Slack, no worries. It’s no different than text messaging or using an AOL chat room. (Remember those?) You can use it in your browser or download the app on your phone or computer. (Just search for “Slack” on your phone or computer’s app store.)
Do you want to promote your organization’s event on the official WCDP Facebook page, Twitter account, newsletter, and website? Let us know in the #share channel. Can’t seem to find the Zoom link for the monthly WCDP meeting? Look for it in the #announcements channel or ask someone in the #general channel. Feeling lonely and want to chat with others during Biden’s inauguration? Hang out in the #lounge.To join, follow this link (expires at the end of the month) or ask for an invite (firstname.lastname@example.org). Once you join our Slack, you will be able to invite others. However, we will be checking to make sure everyone is an official member of the Michigan Democratic Party. (Join the MDP here.)
Car Caravan for Housing and Criminal Justice Reform
January 11, 10:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.
The Poor People’s Campaign of Michigan and the PPC Lansing Chapter invites advocates and allies across Southern Michigan to participate in the first PPC Moral Monday event of 2021 – a car caravan at the State Capital calling for fair housing for the poor and criminal justice reform. The specific calls for action target Ingham County, so this Washtenaw County’s chance to stand with our Lansing friends to help them get action on housing and criminal justice reform. Michigan has momentum to build on!
Cars are gathering at 10:30 am at Union Missionary Baptist Church (500 S. MLK Jr. BLVD) in Lansing before caravanning downtown. And please help by getting out the word. Even if people can’t participate, they can hear that housing and criminal justice reform are still social justice priorities for 2021. Here’s the link to the organizers’ Facebook page.
