D.E.T. For Detroit

Yesterday, a passionate group of community activist and residents of Detroit organized a meeting to discuss the Emergency Financial Manager Law and the status of Detroit in the Congressional 13th District at King Solomon Missionary Baptist Church. In this meeting we shared our vision in creating a strategic framework in achieving justice and protecting Democracy in Michigan. Benton Harbor, Ecorse, and Flint are all cities also affected by the emergency manager law in Michigan. These are predominantly African-American communities, therefore it disrupts the black vote and create a civil rights issue; especially since where Detroit plays a major role on the African American turn-out in Michigan.

“I’m against the Emergency Financial Manager because there is never an appropriate time to suspend Democracy. We all deserve the right to ensure our voices are heard.” -D.E.Thomas
