DETROIT -- Today our city stands at an economic, political and social crossroad.
Amidst the changing of congressional voting districts, particularly Detroit’s 13 & 14th voting districts and the many moves to suppress the voting rights of minorities in this state (as witnessed by the current bills in the Michigan legislature), Detroiters must let their voices be heard.
Our candidate for Congress has always been there for us and now – we must be there for him. Our choice for the 13th Congressional District is the Honorable Congressman John Conyers, Jr.
In addition to Congressman Conyers, we are very enthusiastic in our support for the candidacy of the junior congressman - also from the city of Detroit. This candidate has been most assertive on all of the key issues related to Detroit. He is known as a fighter for rights of people and the concerns of the poor. He has been an outspoken voice for our city and state since he was a member of the Michigan state legislature.
Our choices for Congress will lead the Fannie Lou Hamer slate – followed by the Honorable Sheriff of Wayne County Benny Napoleon along with key state legislators, Wayne County Commissioners and judges from the 3rd Circuit and 36th District Courts. Please see a copy of our current slate. Thank you.
