The Socialist Party of Michigan will be holding our Voter Outreach mobilization on Saturday August 27th in which we will hand out copies of our Voter Outreach flyer to residents in one of the districts in Detroit with the highest vote totals for Socialist and Green candidates in the 2004 elections. We will be meeting at 12:00PM at the McDonalds at the Southwest Corner of E. Seven Mile Rd. and Gratiot Ave. in Detroit.
Copies of the Voter Outreach flyer will be available for all members to hand out when they arrive. If you’d like to bring your own copies, you can download the
