BLOOMBERG: History Was Made in Selma—But Not For Selma
Fifty years after America was changed on the Edmund Pettus bridge, residents of the struggling city hope the anniversary will bring more: tourists, economic revival, the promise of Bloody Sunday finally fulfilled.
Most weekdays for the last 10 years, Letasha Irby, 36, has driven her car across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Ala., to get to a job that pays $11.33 an hour. The black mother of two lives about a 20-minute drive from the iconic bridge, which is named in honor of a Reconstruction-era Alabama Ku Klux Klan leader and U.S. senator and is the spot where demonstrators were set upon by police in an event that's come to be known as Bloody Sunday...

Tell Lansing, get your priorities straight!
Michigan Republicans don’t like their office building in Lansing. They want new digs. They want a better view of the Capitol. But instead of renovating their building, they’re spending more than double the cost of renovation to build a brand new building. The price tag for the new construction? $70 million! Read More >>>

Region 1 Camping Trip...
thanks go out to the Recreational Committee for a wonderful weekend!
As you may remember from the Region 1 CAP Council Meeting, we discussed starting a CAP Council in both Oakland and Macomb counties. Much interest and anticipation was generated during that meeting. Therefore, we are asking you to encourage your CAP activists to get involved. The more participants the stronger our CAP Council will be. In order for this Council to succeed, we need as many participants as possible.
The by-laws dictate that we need four (4) officers for each CAP Council. We ask that only members who reside in the respective counties take part in these councils.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mike Stone, Region 1 CAP Coordinator, at 586-427-9200 or email@example.com .

WHAT IS V-CAP?
V-CAP is the UAW’s political action fund made up of voluntary contributions from UAW members, retirees and their families. The money is used to support pro-worker political candidates who have earned the endorsement of the UAW Community Action Program (CAP).
From taxes and trade policy to retirement security and health care to education and infrastructure – politics affects our daily lives. That’s why it’s essential for working families to make our voices heard in local, state and national politics by supporting candidates who support us. One of the most effective ways to do that is by contributing to V-CAP.
