This is the Peace Action of Michigan annual Fishman-Perrin Lecture. Father Tom Lumpkin, a giant peacemaker in Detroit's Corktown, is now 80 years old. For five decades he's tended to poor people by working at a soup kitchen, overseeing a homeless shelter for women and celebrating Mass every Sunday at the Wayne County jail. His peacemaking skills are in high demand. There is no charge for this conversation with Father Tom, a seasoned and wise peacemaker.

This June, the Motor City Freedom Riders are again hosting "Transit Organizing 101," now a single day-long training on how we can organize effectively to win better transit service. In this training, we will learn how to build an effective transit justice movement that can win better transit across metro Detroit. We'll begin by examining the history of public transit in our region, to try to answer the following questions: Why is transit in metro Detroit so fragmented and inadequately funded? What is the relationship between racism, classism, and anti-transit politics in Detroit? What are the forces that have held us back for so long? Who is it who actually governs our transit systems? This is the political terrain we need to navigate to be able to change the system. Next, we'll run a workshop on how to run strategic campaigns to take on the region's political establishment and clear the path for expanded public transit. We'll walk through critical concepts like power-mapping, the spectrum of allies, and strategic escalation as we learn how to build campaigns that can win. Lastly, we'll learn how to hold one-on-one conversations with other bus riders, to build power with one another through relationships. All who complete this training are welcome to join the ranks of our Rider Advocates, who do outreach and organizing with other riders along their route and run our various transit justice campaigns. We compensate our Rider Advocates with free bus passes. Classes are free and open to the public. All are welcome, and lunch will be served. Bus riders in particular are encouraged to attend. If you plan to come, please register at the ticket link, as space is limited. https://www.facebook.com/events/885120678497725/

Title Track is working with William Copeland (aka Will See) of Collective Wisdom Detroit and a network of partners (Earthwork Music, D.Cipher) to bring a FREE, all all ages cultural event to Detroit, inspired by the Earthwork Harvest Gathering. This one day happening will take place on the Campbell Terrace Stage (Lafayette & St. Aubin) to celebrate cultural resilience and our local social ecologies. The musical lineup will proudly feature notable acts in folk, hip-hop, funk, soul and rock-n-roll. Community leaders will address the crowd representing a variety of local cultural and organizing efforts. Youth programming will be central to the event including a kids concert and interactive workshops throughout the afternoon and evening on topics including songwriting, poetry writing, and permaculture. Donations will be accepted with proceeds gathered at the first annual Earthwork Detroit Music Festival benefiting the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network. The Earthwork Detroit Music Festival is part of a year long commemoration "Black Bottom Lives!" taking place at the Dequindre Cut. We are honored to join in recognizing the historical legacy of community and culture against tremendous odds that Black Bottom has provided for Detroiters. Participating artists include: The Aadizookaan, Nique Love Rhodes & The NLR Experience, BRYCE DETROIT, Audra Kubat, Spirits Rising, Will See Music, and Seth Bernard. Piper Carter of the Piper Carter podcast (Detroit is Different) will be providing media support. Many thanks to Avalon International Breads for their sponsorship support. https://www.facebook.com/events/2432650510131748/
