Come Join MCHR in the Labor Day Parade
March under the MCHR banner
September 2nd, 9:30am
Gathering beginning at 8:00
Every year, the largest demonstration of people power in Michigan takes place on Labor Day in Detroit.

Community members have always had a place in the Metro Detroit AFL-CIO's Labor Day March down Michigan Ave. to Hart Plaza.

By marching together in 2019, hopefully, Labor and Community will be able to move forward together in 2020. The march, the advance planning and a post-march evaluation could lay the groundwork for a unified progressive movement in Michigan.

Bring your own banners and promote your issue(s)and organizations, if you are a member of one. The Community Contingent will march behind a banner that unites us and our issues:

"We all do better when we all do better."

Marchers start congregating around 7:30 am. You don't have to get there that early, but feel free to arrive before the march starts at 9:30 a.m. so you can meet other marchers and get to know each other better.

Coming September 17th - More Details to Come

Date and location the meantime here's what you can do.
 Gently Used Media Equipment Needed for Youth Media Team
A few of the youth from this summer's Freedom Tour want to form a media team that will highlight social justice issues. Gently used cameras, video recorders  and computers would give them a good start to their learning and productions.
Many of you upgrade your equipment and have older models gathering dust that are rarely used. If they are still in good working condition, why not donate them and help a young person express their passion for social justice and their creativity at the same time.
Please call our office 313 579 -9071 if you have something to donate and we will arrange to pick it up. The team hopes to get started in September.
