MI-11 Bipartisan Candidate Citizens & Climate Forum
sponsored by Detroit Metro North Chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby
Saturday, May 12th, 10am-12pm
Baldwin Library, 300 W Merrill St, Birmingham, 48009
Candidates expected to attend include:
Suneel Gupta (D) • Tim Greimel (D)
Dan Haberman (D) • Fayrouz Saad (D)
Haley Stevens (D) • Rocky Raczkowski (R)
The forum is designed to provide voters with information on where candidates stand with regards to solutions to the existential threat of climate disruption. Citizens' Climate Lobby(CCL) is focused on passage of a Carbon Fee and Dividend bill. This is the solution economists and climate scientists alike say is the "best first step" to preventing the worst impacts of a changing climate. This market based approach will drastically reduce CO2 emissions, create jobs and support small businesses and
families- all without growing government.
Citizens' Climate Lobby builds political will for a livable world by empowering individuals to exercise their personal, political power. Chapters establish relationships with their Members of Congress by meeting with them & their staff in district as well as in DC communicating respectfully and forging bonds based on discovered shared values. CCL is expressly nonpartisan and provides informational resources to elected officials regardless of political party or affiliation.
Please join us for the free event hosted by the Birmingham-Bloomfield Dems, Fems for Dems and the Michigan Democratic Party for a task force meeting with Democratic Floor Leader Christine Greig and Representative Robert Wittenberg to discuss and engage with public input on Democratic priorities and platform for 2018, and to strategize for the coming months.
We will discuss Roads, Health Care, Education, Jobs and other problems facing our state and we want to hear from you!
If we learned anything from the last year, it's that so much is possible when people become active citizens and work together. Your dedication to promoting progressive values is critically important as we move forward!
Doors open at 6:30pm, meeting to start at 7:00pm
