People’s Budget Community Dinner & Gathering
Tuesday, September 20th 6-8PM
Ypsilanti Freight House
The Community Dinner & Gathering on Tuesday, September 20th is an opportunity for community members to look at ways that we can have an impact on how monies are spent & to learn more about the ideas that community members have about what we need to serve people better.
Registration requested, not mandatory. This is an open, free community dinner & gathering. Registration helps us to plan for the logistics & food for the event.
The Interfaith Council for Peace & Justice (ICPJ) supports the call of Black Lives Matter and others to re-envision the way that we spend public monies. We want investments in the education, health and safety of our communities, instead of investments in the criminalizing, caging, and harming of BIPOC people and poor people. We want investments in BIPOC communities, determined by communities themselves, and divestment from exploitative forces including prisons, fossil fuels, police, surveillance and exploitative corporations.
We are grateful for the financial support of the United Way of Washtenaw County and the First Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Ann Arbor for this project
