South Central Michigan Greens announce monthly meeting
The South Central Michigan Greens local will hold its monthly meeting 2:00 –4:00 pm on Saturday, September 22 at Biggby's Coffee, 1125 East Michigan Avenue in Emmett Township east of Battle Creek.
Co-founder John Anthony La Pietra of Marshall, who is also the Green candidate for 63rd District State Representative, will report on recent activities:
- Attending a meeting of the Calhoun County Board last month to support calls to cancel a contract allowing ICE to house detainees at the county jail.
- The Labor History Walk, sponsored by the local and held in Marshall the weekend of Labor Day.
- Last weekend's Green Party of Michigan statewide membership meeting in Traverse City.
The local serves Calhoun, Hillsdale, and Jackson Counties. "We're also reaching out to anyone in Kalamazoo County who's interested in Green Party values, in case they'd like to join us -- or start up a local of their own," noted La Pietra. The 63rd District touches parts of Kalamazoo and Calhoun Counties.
La Pietra wants working people across the region to know that, win or lose in November, he'll host another Labor History Walk next spring around International Labor Day (May 1).
