This year we will elect a new governor in Michigan! We want the next governor to fight for workers' rights, environmental justice, jobs for all, healthcare for all, drivers' licenses for all, and criminal justice reform. This is why on Saturday, July 14, MPC will have a governor's endorsement caucus, where you, the MPC delegates, will debate and decide which candidate receives the endorsement of MPC.
There are two ways to become a delegate:
A.) Come to a 2 hour training on movement politics, deep canvassing, and our endorsement process. At the end of the training, you can become a delegate by signing a pledge to speak with 20 voters in our list before the August primary and 50 voters in our list before the November election. You can also substitute the 20 voter conversations with 10 voter registrations. These trainings are taking place BEFORE the July 14th Caucus.
B.) You can attend one of the trainings and also recruit 5 people to attend the trainings and become delegates through the process above. Once your 5 recruits attend and signing their pledge forms, you automatically become delegate!
All members of MPC can become delegates, regardless of immigration or citizenship status and have a voice in deciding which candidates will MPC endorse. Members of the candidate endorsement committee get a vote on the candidates MPC will endorse in the primary elections and general elections for the following races:
-Michigan Governor 2018-State representatives in your county 2018-State senators in your county 2018
Come to one of our next delegate orientations! Or, contat us to host your own!!
