Volunteer to Repeal the Emergency Financial Manager Law—Attend Training This Weekend

June 3, 2011

Michigan Forward, united with other activist organizations across the state, has set training sessions for people volunteering to help topple Public Act 4. This is the Emergency Financial Manager Act which has been called “fiscal martial law.”

By collecting signatures this summer, we can stop this law in its tracks before more communities and school systems are taken over by EFMs with unlimited power. Canvassers need to attend one of the training sessions to get started.

There are two training sessions available to Grand Rapids volunteers this Saturday, June 4. Both are from 10 AM to noon:


Michigan AFSCME Council 25 (Lansing)
1034 North Washington Avenue
Lansing, MI 48906
Phone: 517-487-5081

Michigan AFSCME Council 25 (Kalamazoo)
3625 Douglas Avenue
Kalamazoo MI 49004
Phone: (866) 405-6800 Toll-free

You can pre-register for training using this form at the bottom of the page.

As soon as the required number of signatures are collected, the law will be suspended until the 2012 election. Throughout the summer and fall, check Michigan Forward’s website and Reject Emergency Mangers’ Facebook page for up-to-date news on the repeal effort.
