The Latest Info on Michigan Independent
Redistricting Commission (UPDATED).

We have an important week ahead in the fight for fair maps! The Michigan Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission is holding public hearings in Detroit, Lansing, and Grand Rapids. Next week the MICRC will be in Gaylord and Flint.

It’s critical that we show up and advocate for fair maps that create a level playing field and don’t benefit either political party. The MICRC is currently considering 10 draft map proposals: 3 for the state House, 3 for the state Senate, and 4 for Congress.

By the MICRC’s own assessment, the maps lean anywhere from 5-8% to the right, giving Republicans an unfair advantage. Their maps are only a slight improvement over the 2011 intentional Republican gerrymander. If we don’t speak up now, the MICRC will likely approve these maps.

The maps also fall short in protecting the voices of communities of color. We must ensure that new maps reflect Michigan’s diverse population. We want to see more minority voices elected to serve in Lansing and Washington, not fewer.  

MICRC Public Hearings:

Wednesday, Oct 20.
TCF Center. 1 Washington Blvd, Detroit
Thursday, Oct 21.
Lansing Center, 333 E. Michigan Ave, Lansing
Friday, Oct 22.
DeVos Place, Steelcase Ballroom, 303 Monroe Ave. NW, Grand Rapids
Monday, Oct 25.
Treetops Resort, 3962 Wilkinson Road, Gaylord
Tuesday, Oct 26.
Dort Center, 3501 Lapeer Road, Flint 


Come see our scarecrow at the Greenville Expo!

Greetings from Dorothy the Democrat. Along with the lesson “there’s no place like home,” Dorothy learned that when we want to solve problems it takes everyone working together. By combining the talents of those around us, we can make things better for all. Small towns have shown that for years, as good neighbors and good citizens. Whether you have “heart” or “courage” or “brains” or experience…let’s join together to assure that there’s no place like home.

You can vote for our scarecrow by voting online!
