Today, in Allegan, SW Michigan Rising Up put on a great event: Rising Up--A Celebration of the Collective Power of Women. Several gubernatorial candidates, including Gretchen Whitmer, Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, and Bill Cobbs stopped by to share their visions for Michigan’s future, taking time to meet the energized crowd. Whoever comes out of this race is certain to do great things for the state. Throughout the day, activists and musicians from around the state circulated petitions, raised awareness on a variety of issues and entertained the crowd. I was lucky to be there on behalf of the Michigan Democratic Party Environment Caucus as we work on building up our outreach network. For more information on the great work the caucus is doing, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
