South Central Michigan Greens January Meeting
The South Central Michigan Greens local's January monthly meeting has been postponed to 1:00 – 3:00 pm on Saturday, January 26 at Biggby's Coffee, 1125 East Michigan Avenue in Emmett Township east of Battle Creek.
Snow on the original January 19 date caused the postponement.
One main topic on the agenda is the "Real Deal" -- the Green New Deal policies as proposed by the Green Party for years -- and how it applies to Michigan. The local serves Calhoun, Hillsdale, and Jackson Counties and has been reaching out to Kalamazoo County.
Environmental issues in the area, including a proposed pollution remediation project in Jackson, will also be discussed. And co-founder John Anthony La Pietra of Marshall will have an update on the Green Party of Michigan's next Statewide Membership Meeting (SMM) at Muskegon Community College on Saturday, March 16 -- including GPMI officers to be elected then, and vacancies that could be filled before the meeting.
Since the SMM is on the local's usual third-Saturday meeting date, schedule planning will also be necessary.
Our local meeting is an event on Facebook.
A map of the location is available at the coffeeshop's Facebook page.
