South Central Michigan Greens to Meet 1-3pm
Saturday, May 18 at Emmett Township Biggby's
The South Central Michigan Greens local will hold its monthly meeting
1-3pm on Saturday, May 18 at Biggby's Coffee, 1125 East Michigan Avenue
in Emmett Township east of Battle Creek.
The meeting is an event on Facebook:
Co-founders Monika Dittman Schwab of Jackson and John Anthony La Pietra
of Marshall will report on the May 4 "Spring into Action" Labor History
Walk sponsored by the local. Other local activities will also be
discussed, along with planning for candidate recruitment.
Another topic on the agenda is the "real Deal" -- the Green New Deal
policies as proposed by the Green Party for years. Co-founders Monika
Dittman Schwab of Jackson and John Anthony La Pietra of Marshall will be
available to discuss how the #realDeal applies to Michigan overall (and
the local area of Calhoun, Hillsdale, and Jackson Counties) -- and how
it differs from other versions.
La Pietra is preparing proposed by-laws amendments to be distributed to
all members and considered at next month's meeting June 15 at the
downtown Jackson Coffee Company (201 S. Mechanic). The amendments could
lead to election of some new officers.
A map of the May 18 meeting's location is available at the coffeeshop's
