Residents from from across the state will meet with their representatives as part of Michigan United’s annual Capitol Day. The event will begin at the Lansing Center Tuesday morning. Members will be able to talk to their representatives about issues they are facing in the state of Michigan.
This year, the exciting keynote address will come from freshman Rep. Laurie Pohutsky (D-Livonia), a graduate of the organization’s Candidate Academy. The anticipated crowd of about 400 people will also welcome the former gubernatorial candidate and their newest board member, Abdul El-Sayed.
Before Capitol Day is over, Michigan United will stage a non-violent direct action. The details of this operation are under wraps until until explained in the Lansing Center immediately before it begins, but in the past, Michigan United has coordinated outrageous stunts to illustrate a serious problem, such as forming a bucket brigade to siphon 50 gallons of water out of the Capitol building for the people of Flint. If you don’t want to read about it in someone else’s paper, you will need to be there when it happens.
