D. Alexander Bullock speaks up for Democracy in Harrisburg


(DETROIT) – D. Alexander Bullock, president of Rainbow PUSH Detroit Chapter and Rainbow PUSH Michigan State Coordinator, will deliver the keynote address at the Interdenominational Minister’s Conference public meeting. The meeting will take place on Saturday, March 10 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Que House, 2020 State St., Harrisburg, PA 17103.  Bullock is one of the staunch leaders in the Michigan Repeal Public Act 4 campaign. He will discuss the efforts that he has organized in Michigan to repeal the emergency manager law that nullifies the votes of citizens.
“In Michigan, we face a very similar issue as the city of Harrisburg does. State occupation is bad public policy. I look forward to connecting Michigan with Pennsylvania as we fight for democracy. As we celebrate the 47th anniversary of Bloody Sunday and the Voting Rights Act, we realize we face a national campaign to disenfranchise the vote. In the face of a crisis, real or imaginary, dismantling democracy and lynching liberty is never a viable solution,” said D. Alexander Bullock.
The purpose of the meeting is to mobilize against the Pennsylvania legislature's efforts to roll back the clock on voting rights and undermine the democratic electoral process with its unconstitutional state takeover of the city. 


Last Wednesday, Bullock and other activists turned in 226,000 signatures to the Michigan Secretary of State’s office to nullify Michigan Public Act 4 and have it placed on the ballot this November. Public Act 4 gives emergency managers the power to suspend the authority of elected mayors and superintendents, revoke collective bargaining agreements, and discorporate or dissolve a municipal government entirely.
