Restore the Voice of Michigan's 13th Congressional District Now!

With the stroke of a pen, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder denied a majority Democratic, Black district of over 700,000 people the right to representation in Congress for nearly a year.

 We will not have someone there to fight on our behalf as the most regressive tax bill moves through Congress, we will not have someone to fight against the cuts to Social Security and other social safety net programs. We will not have someone there fighting for a clean Dream Act or Medicare for all. This is not how a democracy works. 

 Governor Snyder has long shown his lack of concern for the fundamental right to elect representation. He did it with enacting emergency management, taking the power away from elected officials and allowing the horrors of the Flint water crisis, all in the name of saving a few bucks. And now again he is denying our rights to elected representation. Governor Snyder doesn’t have a problem spending public money on giveaways to wealthy corporations, but now he wants to save costs by leaving us without a voice in Washington? We must have representation.

 Please sign this petition demanding Governor Snyder not leave the 13th Congressional District without representation and hold a special election as soon as possible.
