This July the Michigan Supreme Court ruled in favor of allowing the Voters Not Politicians ballot proposal to remain on the ballot.   There are two justices that are up for re-election (both appointed by Gov. Snyder) and there are six candidates for these position.  What's at stake with who gets elected to these positions? How do we decide which candidates will best meet our state's needs?  Come hear this distinguished Constitutional law professor walk us through these important issues before the election.



Gun Control Poem 
By Paul Felton, Gray Panthers Poet

Too many of our daughters and sons
Have lost their lives because of guns
Too many lives have been impacted
I think it’s long past time we acted
Some say less children would be harmed
If only their teachers would be armed
If you ask me that’s not the answer
The spread of guns is like a cancer
We need background checks and furthermore
We need to outlaw weapons of war
The young folks Congress can’t ignore
If we keep pounding at their door
So join the fight, what do you say
We must defeat the NRA
