Great mini-documentary on Michigan’s odious Emergency Manager Law


This 7-minute documentary, Dictators Over Communities of Color: Coming to a Town Near You , was put together by the New Media Adovocacy Project in cooperation with Michigan Forward and the Advancement Project. It’s well worth a watch and I would love for you to share it widely. This isn’t just something Michiganders should be paying attention to.

Big shout out to my very good friend Brit Satchwell. He’s the super-energetic guy toward the end with the sunglasses and big smile working the Ann Arbor Farmer’s market. Brit is the president of the Ann Arbor Education Association, our local teachers’ union and a phenomenal organizer.

(I was interviewed for about 2 hours for this documentary but, apparently, ended up on the cutting room floor. Story of my life ; )
