Michigan Welfare Rights Organization welcomes allies and friends from the Council of Canadians and cities across Ontario, Canada as they deliver dozens of gallons of fresh water to Detroit residents whose water has been shut off.
Please join us at 3:30pm as we gather to welcome a Canadian caravan of vehicles when they cross the border at 4pm! We’ll greet them at the Spirit of Detroit statue in front of the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center, 2 Woodward Ave (at Jefferson) in downtown Detroit. Following the welcome rally, the caravan and local residents will deliver the water to a People’s Water Board water station at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, 1950 Michigan Ave (at Trumbull Ave) in Detroit — only a few short minutes away. For more information see: Canadian Convoy to Detroit on facebook.
Maude Barlow, National Chairperson of the Council of Canadians; and Maureen Taylor, MWRO State Chair are among the featured speakers. Please spread the word!
