Michigan 34th District State Representative Cynthia Neeley “ Mask Up” Campaign
Black Lives Matter Lansing
Mayor Virg Bernero created a $100K line item for President Obama's My Brother's Keeper Challenge and called upon One Love Global to convene that work for our region. Not only did we convene our region, with the blessing of the White House, we organized MBK Michigan. Mayor Bernero declared from day 1 that girls must be included for him to get behind it. Girls Equity Network was born. That is what community partnership looks like. That is what community control of resources looks like.
Mayor's Schor's defense is that this is about us wanting control of funds. He is 100% correct. BLM and our allies (thank you allies) protested at City Hall for those funds after three years of laboring for free. You live here and represented Lansing but I guess you weren't aware of that. We were told by Bishop David Maxwell that the funds were secure. We learned differently in the media when the budget was released.
How dare we demand control of the funds we fought for? Because we are not slaves to white supremacy. That's how we dare. Truth be told, we demanded $1M from the police budget and both Mayor Bernero and Chief Yankowski knew our demands in advance of the prayer in protest. Any politician worth their salt would have been better prepared. He scores low on that alone. When we are caught off guard we can only go with what's in our gut and what we know. We saw what's inside of this man and what he knows.

FIGHTING FOR A FAIR & FAITHFUL CENSUS
The 2020 census will profoundly impact the future of our democracy and the health of our communities. Ensuring a complete count is a moral necessity. We must work together to ensure that the census promotes equality, not exclusion.
In past censuses, millions of children, people of color, low-income people and immigrants have gone uncounted -- perpetuating systemic racism, undermining political representation, and underfunding resources we all use, everything from hospitals to roads to schools for the next 10 years.
People of faith like you can help fix that by educating our friends, neighbors and faith communities about how to participate in the 2020 Census -- and why it’s so important. BECOME A CENSUS AMBASSADOR TODAY

""The 'Lawns to Legumes' program, tucked into a sweeping environmental program funding bill, will provide $900,000 in one year to cover most of the cost of turning traditional residential lawns into pollinator habitats.
To be eligible, yards must be planted with 'native vegetation and pollinator-friendly' flowering plants and legumes, including dutch white clover, creeping thyme and various wildflowers and grasses."

Flint Water SCANDAL
"New state records show the cost of prosecuting and defending state employees implicated in the Flint water crisis has topped $30.7 million, including payments of more than $1 million dollars to attorneys for eight separate officials.
Documents requested from state government offices by MLive-The Flint Journal detail the spending by the Governor's Office, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Environmental Quality and the Attorney General's Office.
And the bills aren't stopping anytime soon.
Eight criminal cases remain on court dockets in Genesee County and $2 million appropriated for special prosecutors remains in the bank.
The totals don't include expenses like expert witness fees or payments to attorneys representing current and former city of Flint employees or to former state-appointed emergency managers here.
In total, the spending has topped $8.5 million for the Governor's Office, $8.1 million for the DEQ, $7.1 million for DHHS and $6.9 million for the AG.
Here are the 10 most-expensive-to-defend state officials so far."
Flint Water SCANDAL
[FLINT, MI -- – Fadwa A. Hammoud, Michigan’s new solicitor general, will also take the lead on the criminal cases related to the Flint water crisis, Attorney General Dana Nessel announced Tuesday, Jan. 15.
Hammoud, a former Wayne County assistant prosecutor, will oversee work by special prosecutor Todd Flood.
Flood has called Hammoud, “a great person and an excellent lawyer who will serve the people of the state of Michigan well.”
“I am looking forward to working with her,” he added.
Flood is scheduled to return to court in Flint Wednesday, Jan. 16, for the continuation of a preliminary examination in the case of Patrick Cook, one of eight remaining current and former state and city employees charged with crimes related to the water crisis.
Cases have also been filed against former Flint emergency managers Darnell Earley and Gerald Ambrose as well as Nick Lyon, the former director of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and Dr. Eden Wells, Michigan’s former chief medical executive.
Nessel issued a statement announcing the shake-up Tuesday, saying the prosecutions "have gone on for years and have cost the taxpayers of this state millions of dollars. It’s time for resolution and justice for the people of Flint.”]
It's time to #ChangeTheDebate.
This summer we'll gather thousands at one of the first Presidential primary debates to make the #GreenNewDeal a top issue in 2020.
In 2016, there were ZERO questions on climate in the general election debates and it wasn’t much better in the primary. That’s unacceptable. This action will be our biggest opportunity to shape the 2020 Presidential primary, and with it the fate of the Green New Deal.

Stop the Madness
Thank you Patricia Randolph for making the people of Wisconsin aware of wildlife killing contests and asking for action to end them! It’s up to all of us to let our elected state officials know we want wildlife killing contests banned. Let’s stop the madness.
Take a stand for clean water. Pledge to vote this November.
It has been over 4 years, and Flint's water is still giving residents birth defects, seizures, and memory loss. Governor Snyder allowed it to happen and now, his Attorney General Bill Schutte wants to take over. Pledge to vote for Gretchen Whitmer and Garlin Gilchrist to restore clean water.
