Don't miss this opportunity look ahead after the election!
This midterm election promises to have high turnout and some of us are working hard
to support ballot issues and candidates who will support our justice priorities. Mr. Guyette is a crusading journalist who has investigated the outrageous Flint water crisis, Michigan's Emergency Managers system and the Education Achievement Authority. Before working for the ACLU of Michigan, Curt worked as an editor/writer for the Detroit Metro Times.
Supreme Court Poem
By Paul Felton
My feelings are still very raw
About the Judge Brett Kavanaugh
I must say that to me it seems
He’s not fit to join the Supremes
It’s clear to me he was at fault
In charges of sexual assault
And in the hearing room he lied
For perjury he should be tried
On other matters great and small
His views are quite Neanderthal
In any case it’s a sad day
For women, and the USA.
(Paul Felton is a Gray Panthers poet laureat.)
