Join Us For Our Annual Spring Fundraiser

We are excited to announce that our annual spring fundraiser will be held next Thursday April 17th at Beggars Banquet from

5:00PM-7:30PM. We ask that students join us for the event as it is an amazing opportunity to network with political candidates, representatives, grass roots organizers and various other individuals dedicated to turning our state blue. As students ourselves we understand the struggles of finances and ask that rather than donating your money you donate your time with us at both the fundraiser and over the course of the upcoming campaign season.

 

All funds raised will aid us in our goal of registering students, walking for candidates across the state, attending conferences to expand our knowledge on how we as students can make a difference and providing students with exciting opportunities on and off campus.

 

Our Host Committee includes the Honorable Jim Ananich, the Honorable Rebecca Bahar-Cook and Mr. Todd Cook, the Honorable Ruth Beier, the Honorable Curtis Hertel Jr., the Honorable Sam Singh, the Honorable Nathan Triplett, the Honorable Angela Wilson, the Honorable Tom Cochran, the Honorable Andy Schor, the Honorable Dayne Walling, Ms. Patricia Hirsch and Mr. Stephen Wooden.

Mark Schauer’s Statement on Todays Gay Marriage Ruling

Today  a Michigan judge ruled that the states ban on same sex marriage was unconstitutional. Our Democratic candidate for Governor Mark Schauer made a statement about the ruling at one point stating “This is a major victory for loving, committed couples across the state. While I know there are differing views on this issue, I firmly believe every Michigander deserves equal protection under the law, and today’s ruling reaffirms this fundamental American value.” You can view his full statement here.

Rape Insurance, WTF?

In December the Michigan Republicans passed a citizen-initiated bill, backed by Right to Life, that would require women to purchase extra insurance coverage in order to obtain an abortion–even if that pregnancy that was the result of a sexual assault. This type of legislation is a direct violation of women’s civil liberties and is a governmental stance in support of rape culture.

These actions are deplorable and we refuse to stand by and let this type of legislation regulate the female body. If you would like to learn more about the bill itself and what you can do to help change the situation for the millions of women across our state, join us as we host Senate Democratic Leader Gretchen Whitmer and a representative from Planned Parenthood. They will be here to discuss the bill and answer any questions you may have

The event will be held at 7:00pm in room 339 Case Hall

If you would like to know more about the legislation prior to the event, please refer to these links
