Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

We the People Michigan

Lansing, Michigan



We the People works to build a multi-racial, working class constituency across Michigan engaged in community organizing, development of leaders and building a unified, proactive agenda rooted in economic, racial and social justice. This grant will enable We The People to build its organizational capacity to better support civic engagement in Michigan by: coordinating  Regional Organizing Summits focused on economic justice, equitable development, immigration, incarceration and voting rights; hiring a Learning Director to serve as a model for prioritizing long-term learning over short-term metrics; and hosting three intensive organizing workshops to train new state political leaders.
