Event by MLK Day Manitowoc
Things are already bad–and they’re about to get worse if we the people do not come together to fight back!
In the spirit of Dr. King, the People’s Power Summit is a coming together of diverse people’s organizations to celebrate our shared history and future.
Our intention is to continue building a mutually empowering network of progressive organizations and community members.
This is an independent initiative to fight for the rights of poor and working people, including jobs, education, housing, food security and healthcare.
We struggle against racism, sexism, low wages, prisons and war. We support the LGBTQ community, Black Lives Matter, the Indigenous, Immigrant Rights, Family Farmers and unions.We fight for the environment and believe Water IS Life!We are building our People Power!
This event will be family friendly.
No camping on the grounds or alcohol or other drugs. NO EXCEPTIONS!
A variety of housing options at multiple campgrounds and other hotels/motels in the vicinity are available.
Note: This event will be updated with a detailed schedule soon. Thus far, there’ll be an Indigenous Land Acknowledgement on Friday evening, a community meal and cultural presentations. On Saturday there’ll be Indigenous presentations, workshops, kids activities, speakers, cultural presentations and more.
