Michigan Welfare Rights Organization
"You get what you are organized to take!"
HOW CAN YOU HEAL A BROKEN HEART?
Founding Welfare Rights member Mrs. Helen Stanley-Coleman was in Detroit, making her poignant presentation as we celebrated the 15th anniversary of the great Tent City movement, when we received news that her son had passed away. The great Judge Bledsoe in Highland Park, made his transition. An now, we learn that the electric Elizabeth Robinson, champion of poor people, advocate for welfare recipients, who was a rock of support at the Dept. of Human Services, last night joined the ancestors. Our hearts are again in pain, our souls injured, our eyes blurred. How much more can we carry, how much more hurt must we endure. Vallory, Jeanette, Mrs. Wills, Travis, Debra Bradt, and so many others have pointed the path toward selfless sacrifice, so somehow through yet another dark night, we shall endure this too. Sleep well, champions of justice, 'til we meet again.
