Important Human Trafficking Forum this Saturday, April 27:

Please join the 14th District’s Political Action Committee for an important Panel Discussion this Saturday at 10:00 a.m. at the WC3 in Harper Woods. Learn how you can help stop this epidemic.

“Human trafficking in Michigan has skyrocketed over the past decade. Now more than ever people need to be on the lookout to keep their family safe. 

Michigan is ranked #2 in the country for human trafficking, right behind Nevada. There are more than 1.5 million cases of human trafficking in the United States, including more than 2,000 cases of sex trafficking nationally. 

So why is Michigan ranked so high? Some say due to being so close to Canada, traffickers can easily take victims across the border. The National Human Trafficking Resource center reports that since 2007 they have received 1969 calls and 483 cases just from Michigan.”

Season’s Greetings and Happy New Year, Fellow 14th District Democrats!

Greetings, Democrats! As we continue our holiday celebrations and the 2018 year draws to a close, I want to thank you again for all of your hard work. Your voting, your campaigning, your organizing, your attending, your contributions, your candidacies made the difference in Michigan. In a few days time, we will have a Democratic Governor, a Democratic Lieutenant Governor, a Democratic Secretary of State, a Democratic Attorney General, a Democratic-majority State Board of Education, and Democratic-majorities on the Wayne State University, Michigan State University, and University of Michigan boards. We have five more Democrats in the State Senate and five more Democrats in the State House — but we need to work toward Democratic legislative majorities at long last. For the first time in forty years, Democrats now even have a majority on the Oakland County Commission!

As we reflect on the big wins we helped build this year, the 2020 Presidential Election and many important statewide and local races loom on the horizon. I’m committed to continue organizing throughout Wayne and Oakland counties and I hope you’ll continue to join me in that effort through the 14th District Democrats. Here are a reminder of upcoming Democratic activities in the new year:
