Visit the Socialist Party Booth at Detroit’s Dally in the Alley Street Fair, Sat. Sept. 9, 2017

The Socialist Party of Michigan will have an informational literature booth at the 40th annual Dally in the Alley street fair from 11:00 AM to 11:00 PM on Saturday September 9th. The Dally in the Alley is held each year in Detroit’s Cass CorridDallyposter2017or within the square block bounded by Hancock St. and Forest Ave. to the north/south and 2nd Ave. and 3rd Ave. to the east/west (map).

The annual free community street fair features a wide array of vendors, live music, and visual artists, and is conducted without corporate sponsors. It typically draws a crowd of 50,000 to 60,000 attendees.

We won’t know the precise spot of the Socialist booth until the point of check-in and set-up on Sat. morning. However, the booth should be easy to find from its display of a Socialist Party USA banner and SP posters.

The State Convention is the highest ranking meeting body of the Socialist Party of Michigan and is empowered to amend the SPMI State Bylaws and State Platform, adopt, amend, and rescind State Convention resolutions, elect the SPMI’s State Executive Committee officers, and elect the SPMI’s delegates to the Socialist Party USA National Convention.

SPMI State Conventions are generally held only once every two years – with the aim of full state party membership participation. All SPMI members from around the state are therefore strongly urged and expected to attend. There is no fee for participating in the Convention, and voting credentials are automatically accorded to all Michigan SPUSA members in good standing. Non-member observers are also welcome to attend.
