Our Member Meeting this week will include an Entering, Engaging and Exiting Communities workshop, which will incorporate principles and practices for ethical community work led by a representative from the Ginsberg Center. We hope that all of our members are able to attend this meeting as community engagement is part of the core our Michigan Movement!
Get to know the executive and general members of Michigan Movement with our member social event! This event counts as one of the two required non-volunteering events to become an official MIM member. Bring any board games that you have (we’ll have some ready, too) and join us for some snacks!

Candidate for UM Regent Jordan Acker and State Representative Yousef Rabhi will be in attendance to hear student concerns about rent prices in Ann Arbor, food security, student employment, and tuition increases, among other pressing issues.
We believe this event will be an opportunity for Michigan students to share the problems they face to a group of candidates and elected officials whose job it is to represent them. The candidates and elected officials present are there to listen, not talk, and we aim to use this opportunity to hold them accountable to what they can do to make the University of Michigan more affordable.
Please share this form to submit questions in advance: https://goo.gl/P296Zg. The form also includes an option if the asker would like someone else to publicly ask the question.
