South Central Michigan Greens to Meet 1-3pm
Saturday, April 20 at Jackson Coffee Company

The South Central Michigan Greens local will hold its monthly meeting 
1-3pm on Saturday, April 20 at the downtown Jackson Coffee Company (201 
South Mechanic Street in Jackson).

The meeting is an event on Facebook:

The local serves Jackson, Calhoun, and Hillsdale Counties.  But anyone 
who supports the Green Party platform of Peace, Planet, and People Over 
Profit -- or wants to find out about the #realDeal, the Green Party's 
decade-old original version of the Green New Deal -- is welcome to attend.

We will discuss upcoming local activities and opportunities to get 
involved -- including a pollution remediation proposal being started in 
Jackson this spring, proposed natural-gas mega-plants in the area, and 
this year's spring Labor History Walk in Marshall on Saturday, May 4, 
the weekend after international Labor Day (May 1).

Co-founder John Anthony La Pietra will report on a celebration of "the 
other MLK Day" held April 4 at the Marshall District Library.  Local 
officers and by-laws, and the results of the recent statewide membership 
meeting March 16 in Muskegon, are also expected to be on the agenda.

A map of the location is available here:
