Vote Pledge 2018

The Reparations Labor Union and the Detroit Chapter of NCOBRA sent questionnaires for the Reparations Slate to all candidates who shall be on the ballot for the August 7, 2017 Primary in Wayne County, Michigan.  Many candidates did not respond, but we will no longer be ignored!  We will no longer be bullied into voting our fears instead of our economic best interests!  Of those who did respond to our questionnaire, were a co-sponsor of H.R. 40, had signed our petition, or had taken a public position on reparations, then the following candidates were endorsed by Committee for the Reparations Slate:

    I do not have transportation so it's difficult for me to get around. However, I have a laptop and Smartphone. Perhaps I can assist from home.
