School Supply Community Program 2014

  The school supply give away was a success! We helped 374 families, which consisted of 844 backpacks handed out to children from grades K-12. I would like to thank Local 685 active employees and retirees, Brian West from Local 1166, Cheryl Graham from United Way, all the volunteers from the community and the various other organizations that participated in and helped make this possible. Once again, this shows how working together for the community can be a success.

50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King's March in Detroit

 The Civil Rights Committee would like to thank the Local for allowing us to go to Detroit to attend the 50th anniversary of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “I Have a Dream” speech.

The speech was written at UAW Solidarity House in an office provided to Dr. King by UAW President Walter Reuther. It was read at a march in Detroit before the march in Washington, DC.

We were able to hear speeches from the son of Dr. King, Al Sharpton, Reverend Jesse Jackson and many more.

Again we say “Thank You.”
