Update: Gov. Snyder signs HB4052, Water Detroit to Flint, Duggan D4 Meeting Next Week
July 2, 2015
On Tuesday, June Governor Snyder did in fact sign HB 4052.
Detroit Peoples Platform will continue to raise the issue of the value of the CBA ordinance in advancing both racial and economic justice here in Detroit, particularly as it relates to investment of public dollars in private development. We believe that we must centralize the issue of race and advance more coherent policy recommendations that address racial equity across all aspects of our lives as residents in this community. We believe that the CBA ordinance is one such policy.
Please NOTE that Mayor Duggan’s District 4 Community Meeting has been RESCHEDULED – The meeting will take place on July 9th at 7PM. The meeting will take place at the Salem Memorial Lutheran Church, 21230 Moross Road, Detroit, MI 48236
