    Kick-off event for the LPM Office. Come see the new office in Lansing and help us begin our new presence in our State Capitol. The fun begins at 10 am -- we'll be there at least until 4 pm. Come when you can and spend a little time help the LPM get ready for this exciting election year. In addition to showing off the new digs just a few miles from the legislature, there will be several activities taking place throughout the day. Anyone wishing to have assistance with candidate paperwork is encouraged to attend. This is highly recommended so you don't miss any of the events during the Convention on April 17. Just come and meet others that care about freedom. Connect with others from your area or just meet people from across the state. A casual, fun day with no agenda except how we can assist your affiliate or the building of new ones.

  2. Michigan Civil Rights Petitioning Seminar and Rally by Tim O'Brien

    Seminar Speakers

    Meet Ward Connerly, Jennifer Gratz, and all the rest of the people who are working with you to amend the Michigan Constitution to end discrimination for or against anyone based on race or gender.

    Learn everything you need to know about petitioning, including the legal technicalities, finding locations, and valuable tips that make the job a lot easier.

    Saturday, March 20th at 1:00 pm

    East Lansing Marriott
    300 M.A.C. Avenue at Albert in East Lansing
    Cost - A couple of hours of your time

    Speakers
    Author of the autobiography, Creating Equal: My Fight Against Race Preferences, Mr. Connerly is founder and chairman of the American Civil Rights Institute, a national, not-for-profit organization aimed at educating the public about the need to move beyond racial and gender preferences.

    In 1995, Mr. Connerly led the California Civil Rights Initiative (Proposition 209) campaign, successfully obtaining more than 1 million signatures. In November 1996 California voters passed Proposition 209 by a 55 percent to 45 percent margin.

    Lead plaintiff in one of the two US Supreme court decisions last summer that permitted the University of Michigan to continue using race as a factor in its admissions policy, Ms. Gratz is executive director of the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative.

    In 1995, Ms. Gratz graduated from Southgate Anderson high school, 12th in her class with a 3.8 grade point average, but was rejected by U-M.

    She ultimately earned her bachelors degree in mathematics from U-M Dearborn. Her successful business career took her to California where she lived until moving back home to lead the drive to amend the Michigan Constitution.

  3. LPWM Taxes and Debt Information Event

    The Libertarian Party of West Michigan will be hosting a new effort to inform the public about the deep burden of debt now afflicting the American taxpayer.

    Join others in Grand Rapids and surrounding areas by carrying the ball-and-chain representation of dual burden of taxes and debt. This dramatic effort will certainly bring attention to the growing problem facing us now and long into the future. Literature and radio adds will help support the effort.

    Contact Project Chairman Tom Quinn for more information. mrtomq@yahoo.com
