Next Step: April 21st Regents Meeting

 

Plan on attending the Thursday April 21st Regents Meeting 3pm at Anderson Room, Michigan Union and show your support!

We are working on getting our five speakers lined up to represent specific areas of expertise on the case against placing the bus yard on the proposed site.

You will be asked to identify yourselves during the meeting to show support. The show of support will be powerful, respectful and visual. More information to come but if you have ideas, please share at hello@nea2cc.org!

Our goal is to get 100+ people with their kids at the meeting to make an impact. Watch this powerful video where UM students silently protested against tuition practices at the university back in 2012.
