Save MI Vote – John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Day of Action Votercade

May 8, 2-5 pm, Wheeler Park

The voting rights of America’s Voters of Color and Youth Voters, and everyone who doesn’t want to stand in hours-long lines, are under attack nationally by state legislators introducing and passing laws to suppress their participation in elections. Meanwhile, big business and billionaires are able to spend unlimited amounts of funding to buy our elections.

Join the mobilization on May 8 in the name of John Lewis as part of 100 events across the nation to pass the For the People Act (H.R. 1), the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act (H.R. 4), D.C. Statehood and address the filibuster to do so.

WeROC’s own Rev. Jeffery Harrold will be one of the speakers. For more info and to sign up, click here.

The Washtenaw County Health Department is now hiring temp community health workers for COVID-19 vaccine clinics. This is an AFSCME union affiliated position. WeROC is working for equitable COVID vaccine availability in our community.

Our Mission

WeROC brings together faith, labor, community organizations, and individuals to build healthy collective power needed to break down the systems that sustain injustice, racism, and economic inequality.

Our Vision

WeROC‘s vision is to use our organizing process for the purpose of creating opportunities for more people of color, lower income residents, and youth to participate at the tables where decisions affecting them and the broader community are made, so that together we are developing effective strategies for dismantling the structures that stubbornly maintain injustice, racism, and economic inequality in our area.

WeROC leaders are committed to launching a new phase of WeROC’s local history right here in Washtenaw, building on the deep relationships built, meaningful victories won, and collective experience WeROC members have gained in these first years.  WeROC leaders welcome broad participation  in planning the critical next steps underway right now. We know that when the organized voices of those who’ve been pushed to the margins are powerfully heard, all of us in Washtenaw are the better for it.
