Listen, Understand, Act!
In light of current events, JAG brings the attention of Friends to an opportunity to inform themselves and make a difference in the near-term. Washtenaw County will be electing a new county Prosecutor on August 4, 2020 and a ‘Forum for Prosecutor Candidates‘ is being held on Wednesday, June 17, 7:00 p.m. by the Western Washtenaw Democrats. This may be a good opportunity for Friends to inform themselves about the positions of each candidate as well as ask questions of the candidates.
A scorecard by ‘Liberate Don’t Incarcerate‘ (https://www.liberatedontincarcerate.org/prosecutor-scorecard), a local “group of multi-racial, multi-generational, and queer Washtenaw County residents who are committed to wellness, joy, and liberation for everyone in our county” provides an additional source of information and point of view for Friends to inform themselves.
Note: Prior registration is required for the June 17 Forum and can be accessed at: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZMsf-GvqD8qGNeKXJ7CXODZDABgTzprdmGx
