Welcome to the Washtenaw Regional Organizing Coalition (WeROC)’s website.
WeROC brings together faith, labor, and community organizations and individuals to create a collective voice to impact public affairs and issues in the Washtenaw County, Michigan area. We are affiliated with the MOSES organization in S.E. Michigan (mosesmi.org) and the national Gamaliel Foundation network of community organizing projects.
Our unique organizing process focuses on 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 — and finding effective ways to dismantle the structures that stubbornly maintain racism and economic inequality in our area.
This summer, we are planning for a major Public Meeting, set for Sunday November 15, 2015. Our current action campaigns are being planned by the Education Action Team– which focuses on Restorative Justice and the school-to-prison pipeline– and the Economic Dignity for Working Families Action Team– which will contribute to a statewide ballot campaign and local actions for Earned Sick Time and to improving regional transportation.
How can people get involved? Please watch this website and our Facebook page for details of upcoming planning meetings.
