The Metro Detroit Political Action Network will host an event the group is calling “Love is Love,” as part of its Detroit Solidarity Movement. Join the non-partisan group from 5-9 p.m. on May 7 at Geary Park in Ferndale. MDPAN’s goal, according to its Facebook page, is to empower people to become proactive to fight global corruption and stand up for civil rights. “The bigotry the Trump administration is enforcing in society must be resisted.”
Other organizations are joining MDPAN, like Putting the People First, Taking Back Orange, Planned Parenthood, No Space for Hate, Studio 416 and GLSEN-Southeast Michigan, Equality Michigan, Fair Michigan, Civic Direct Detroit, Detroit Light Brigade and Michigan For Choice.
Speakers include Joseph Fournier, co-founder of MDPAN; Bill Cobbs, a candidate for Governor of Michigan in 2018; Jenny Elgin with No Space for Hate; Brianna Dee Kingsley, treasurer, board of directors for GLSEN-Southeast Michigan; and Dana Nessel, president of Fair Michigan.
MDPAN encourages attendees to bring signs to the park at 1198 Earl Blvd.
