Upcoming WeROC Meetings – UPDATED

Join us for our November 15 Public Meeting: “We All Do Better When We ALL Do Better!”:

We’re working along two pathways, and hope that you and your organization will want to help it happen:

  • One is our Action Teams, which are off and running as they develop the campaigns that will be the “meat” of the November meeting.
  • The other pathway is our large and growing Organizing Committee, charged with comprehensively planning all the tasks we need so we leave the meeting with big successes under our belts.

Join WeROC by attending one of these meetings:

Organizing Committee: Third Thursdays 5:30-7:00

  •  Thursday October 15, 5:30-7:00, First Congregational UCC, 218 N Adams, Ypsilanti (avoid construction by entering from Washington and Emmet streets).
  • Planning the agenda for November 15 and the necessary preparations.

WeROC Meetings of the Whole: First Thursdays, 5:30-7:15 pm

  • November 5 (location TBA)
