We got some events together for ya this month and will be sure to put out January’s events list sooner.
On Tuesday the 18th, a group of concerned citizens, renters, and organizers will be attending the city council meeting. We will be going to insist that city council and the human rights committee take greater action in response to rampant problems with landlords in Ypsilanti. If you are a renter in Ypsilanti (either residential or commercial) and have had serious issues with your landlord (negligence, harassment, unfulfilled maintenance issues, etc.) please come join us. City council and the human rights committee must take their responsibilities to the residents of Ypsilanti seriously and enforce the codes they have set out.
The meeting will start at 7:00pm, but people will be arriving any time after 6:30 to meet before and discuss other actions that we can take. If you would like more information, please feel free to write to us at email@example.com.
Thanks and we hope to see you there,
Ypsilanti Tenants’ Rights Organization
Basic Knitting and Yarn Bombing is postponed until November. Don’t worry, everyone is safe. If you are interested in making the BKYB class next month please send us some times and days that would work for you for us to consider.
In order to provide a free lunch during the Do It Yourself Festival, the Free Skool reached out to farmers at the Ypsilanti Farmers market for donations.
