Special Edition June 24, 2022
Tonight (6/24) 7-8 pm, Vigil at the UM Diag
What does today’s decision mean? Where can we go from here? How can we help?
Vigil organized by Washtenaw County Prosecutor Eli Savit, County Commissioner and nurse Katie Scott, and Board of Health Member Carrie Rheingans, to help the community come together to process the outcome and confusion of the post-Dobbs v. Jackson decision.
Now is the time to be sure we’ve all gotten as many signatures as possible to protect our freedoms. Look for the petitions at the vigil, take one home to help your friends sign, and write to us if you need help signing!

Promote the Vote!
We passed Promote the Vote with a huge majority in 2018. The new Promote the Vote 2022 goes farther – it guarantees, in the constitution:
- Prohibits harassment of voters
- Allows for nine days of in-person early voting
- Ensures that election audits can only be conducted by election officials
- Protects for local election funding and military ballots
Here’s how you can help get these signatures.
