Taking Back Michigan: Mobilizing Our Voice 2020

  • Grand Rapids Center for Community Transformation 1530 Madison Avenue Southeast Grand Rapids, MI, 49507 United States (map)

This brain-trust is to mobilize our voice for legislative sustainability for all of our communities. We seek to share and shed light on policy issues impacting black communities, and connecting millennials of color from across West Michigan and the state of Michigan to increase their political leadership and civic engagement. We want to implement an intersectionality approach into organizing for taking back Michigan not just for 2020 but for the next ten years.

Hosted By: Wesley Watson, Black Millennial Convention, "Tashawna Political Princess" Gill. The Grassroots Caucus, The New Black Progressive Slate, United Precinct Delegates, The Black Women's Community Alliance of GR.

Shirley Chisholm - “If they don’t give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair.”
