The Michigan Truth Tour is a statewide roadshow, put on by the Center for Michigan’s Bridge Magazine (www.bridgeMI.com), attempting to ground the upcoming state election in fact and discussion of the state’s most important issues. Michigan Divided is an exploration of political division in Michigan. Filmed throughout 2017, the film follows six Michigan families during a period of divisive politics. What can the state’s residents agree on?
And how can we work together for a better future? After the film there will be a guided conversation on the movie’s themes
and what steps we can take to resolve the state’s political division.

Defending Democracy PTV and VNP Ballot Issues

Thursday, September 27, 2018

Christ Episcopal Church Fellowship Hall

120 N. Military (at Cherry Hill) 7 pm

In November, Michigan voters will be asked to approve two voter-related ballot issues – Promote the Vote and Voters Not Politicians. Promote the Vote would amend the Michigan Constitution to make a voting system that works for all Michigan citizens, that makes voting more accessible, and that ensures that votes are secure and counted. Voters Not Politicians would amend the Michigan Constitution to place an Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission of registered Michigan voters in charge of redistricting, rather than the politicians in the state Legislature. Both of these proposals are supported by the League of Women Voters Michigan. Learn more about these two important ballot proposals which will aim to increase citizen participation in government. Join us! Public is invited! Coffee and cookies will be served.
