According to a press release from political director Ashley Hall, a coalition of progressive activists, organizations and elected officials across Michigan’s 12th Congressional District are inviting energized community members to participate in the 12th District Activist Summit for a day of learning, training, and momentum building for the 2018 election.

The Summit will take place at Woodhaven High School, 24787 Van Horn Rd., Brownstown Charter Township. 9 a.m.–3 p.m. on Saturday, May 12th.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to participate with other activists to learn and act to elect candidates who share our beliefs in a pluralistic, respectful society that serves everyone.” said Charles Newman, Chair of Protectors of Equality in Government.

During the 2016 elections, MI-12 was the only Congressional District in Michigan to increase voter turnout from Obama’s 2012 numbers, proving that this community knows how to work together to engage volunteers, talk to voters, and win. With 2018 well underway, this Summit will be an opportunity to get involved in issues that matter to our community, while also gaining critical training on voter mobilization and volunteer recruitment efforts. Attendees will leave ready to become volunteer leaders in electoral and issue campaigns across the district.

“The energy, commitment, and know-how in Michigan’s 12th District is second to none, but we can’t take anything for granted this election,” said Congresswoman Debbie Dingell. “It will take all of us coming together to organize, volunteer, and talk to everyone – friends, neighbors and perfect strangers – so can win in 2018 and continue to fight for our values and the issues that matter to our community.”

The 12th District Activist Summit is sponsored by the 12th District Democratic Party, A2D2 Ann Arbor inDivisible for Democracy, Ann Arbor Democratic Club, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell, Indivisible Downriver 12th District, Indivisible Washtenaw County, Michigan Resistance, Michigan Women's March, Our Revolution: Michigan To Believe In, ​Protectors of Equality in Government, Poised For Action, Reclaiming Our American Democracy, State Representative Darrin Camilleri, State Representative Cara Clemente, State Representative Erika Geiss, State Representative Abdullah Hammoud, State Representative Donna Lasinski, State Representative Yousef Rabhi, State Representative Adam Zemke and the Washtenaw County Democratic Party.
