• Detroit stands with women

    OFA-MI launches a local Stand with Women program.

    More than 20 OFA-MI supporters gathered with community leaders in Detroit's Eastern Market neighborhood Thursday to join the fight to protect women's rights in Detroit and Michigan. This was the first of a series of local events by OFA chapters to harness the energy of supporters across the country who want to make sure that women and families have a fair shot at success.

    We know that a leadership gap still exists, and so does Kimberly Hill, co-owner of the local ice cream shop MooTown Creamery where the event was held. She talked about the importance of closing the gap to give women a better chance at succeeding and to give future generations of young girls positive role models.

    Michigan state Representative Rashida Tlaib discussed the need to fight for equal pay and for equal work to make sure Michigan families can be more secure.

    Oakland County Clerk/Register of Deeds Lisa Brown talked about protecting women’s rights. Meghan Hodge Groen of Planned Parenthood echoed this, saying, “Politicians have no place in women's health decisions."

    If you agree and want to make sure these important issues stay at the front of conversations in your community, add your voice.
