On Saturday November 6th, the Socialist Party of Michigan and Detroit Socialist Party will be hosting a public ‘Post-Election Reflection’ pasta dinner fundraiser to salute the Socialist and Green candidates who provided an anti-corporatist political alternative in this year’s election, discuss the November election results, and help recuperate funds spent during the 2010 campaign season.
The event will be held at 4:00PM at the Socialist Party’s newly established state/local office in Detroit and will feature open discussion on the elections over vegetarian pasta, beverages, and snacks, as well as open mic speaking opportunities for all individuals and groups attending. A suggested minimum donation of $5 to $10 is requested at the door (no one turned away if unable to pay). Dinner is included with the suggested donation.
In recognition of the Green Party of MIchigan’s essential contribution to the ballot access efforts of our own dual SP candidates, and corresponding commitment to providing political alternatives to the corporate party candidates more broadly, we are additionally contributing one-third of all revenue raised at this event to the Green Party of Michigan.
The Socialist Party’s state/local office is located on the first floor of the Northend Studios building at 2937 E. Grand Boulevard, Detroit, MI 48202 (approximately three blocks east of Woodward Ave.) In addition to being the tallest building in the area, the nine-story building is also made easy to spot by the 100x125ft rainbow mural spanning the building’s west-facing side toward Woodward.
We most cordially invite all red, green, and/or pasta-hungry members of the community to join us for dinner and discussion this Saturday as we look back on the most recent elections and prepare to mount continued grassroots challenges in the coming elections ahead.
