Michigan on Saturday, August 4, from 2-5 pm at the American Room,
International Institute, 111 E. Kirby, Detroit. (map: http://goo.gl/maps/TuLr)
The purpose of the meeting will be to hear from and nominate candidates for
all offices wholly within Wayne County. Candidates selected will be on the
November 6 ballot as Green Party candidates. All Green Party of Michigan
members residing in Wayne County have voice and voting rights.
In addition, it will be an opportunity for people to learn about
the Green Party and the Jill Stein-Cheri Honkala campaign for President and
Vice-president of the United States. They were nominated at the GPUS
Convention July 14 in Baltimore. They are fighting for a New Green Deal.
The campaign has met the criteria for matching federal funds – a first ever
for a Green Party US presidential candidate. They appeared on Amy Goodman as
she broadcast live from the Convention. The nomination also received coverage
in the NY Times, Washington Post, USA Today and other major media. As they
did in Chicago in 2008, C-SPAN broadcasted and archived the nomination
proceedings at: http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/VoteSpe
Join us for the nomination of candidates, hear about the GPUS Convention and
the Stein-Honkala campaign. Light refreshments served.
