We Are the People needs Labor Day volunteers for Detroit parade


We’re all in this together

We Are the People Michigan is asking for volunteers for the Labor Day parade in Detroit. This is part of the effort to make sure the Protect Our Jobs ballot proposal passes in November and secures the right to collectively bargain in our state constitution.

If you are available, this is guaranteed to be a truly fun and rewarding day. You’ll meet amazing organizers, activists and passionate folks from the labor movement while you help make sure that the drive to crush our unions is stopped.

Good news.

The Project Our Jobs initiative – which puts our right to organize and bargain in the Michigan Constitution – is back on the ballot for November.

Now we need to roll up our sleeves and make sure we win a strong majority, so we all have a real voice in the workplace.

With collective bargaining in our Constitution, teachers, firefighters and nurses can stand up for safety, patient care, quality teaching and other vital public services.

Right now, we need volunteers for the Detroit Labor Day parade this coming Monday, September 3rd. We’re meeting at the Onassis Coney Island, 1501 Michigan Avenue in Detroit at 7:00 am.

Corporate special interests are going to spend a pile of money to defeat us. We need people power to push back, and stand up for working families.

Hope we’ll see you on Labor Day.

Thanks for all you do.
