Hello all,

 

I pray you all are safe and well. I know that our young people in the 13th District are ready to be engaged and give back to our community. This is why we have started a fellowship program that provides mentorship and training program that exposes young people with talented and experienced organizers who are working on social justice issues. 

 

Please encourage young people between the age of 16 to 24 to apply to the 2020 Mama Lila Civic Engagement Fellowship. They will receive a $1,000 stipend, some cool swag and lots of big brothers & sisters to help them succeed. 

 

Hurry and apply! Our first virtual meeting will be help on May 16th. Please share the below flyer, one page with information and electronic application.

 

Let's help support the next leaders in our communities. 

 

Be safe, Rashida

Resolution No. 20-H9-CR1
A Resolution to Censure State Representative Karen Whitsett; House District 9


Whereas, the actions and public statements made by State Representative Karen Whitsett (HD-9) during and prior to the COVID-19 crisis have demonstrated an inconsistency with the values and priorities of the Democratic Party.

And Whereas, State Representative Karen Whitsett has breached protocol in separately arranging meetings with and advocating to the President of the United States, Donald John Trump and the Vice President of the United States, Michael Richard Pence in place of Michigan’s duly elected Democratic leadership and Chief Executive Officer.

And Whereas, State Representative Karen Whitsett has on multiple occasions misrepresented the needs and priorities of Michigan’s duly elected Democratic leadership and Chief Executive Officer to the President, his Administration, and the public.

And Whereas, State Representative Karen Whitsett has repeatedly and publicly praised the President’s delayed and misguided COVID-19 response efforts in contradiction with the scientifically based and action-oriented response from Michigan’s duly elected Democratic leadership and Chief Executive Officer endangering the health, safety, and welfare of her constituents, the City of Detroit, and the State of Michigan.

And Whereas, State Representative Karen Whitsett has participated in events and efforts on behalf of the “Republican Women’s Federation of Michigan” with other Republican operatives to express her gratitude to President of the United States, Donald John Trump, aligning herself with the flawed and misguided response in place of Michigan’s duly elected Democratic leadership and Chief Executive Officer.

And Whereas, When State Representative Karen Whitsett (HD-9) was contacted about the candidate screening process and consideration of this Censure resolution. She declined to request a screening interview or to meet with the 13th District to discuss the concerns over her public allegations against Michigan’s duly elected Democratic leadership and Chief Executive Officer.

Now Therefore Be It Resolved that, we admonish, rebuke, and reprimand State Representative Karen Whitsett (HD-9) for her actions and refusal to electronically meet with the 13th Congressional District. Effective upon passage of this resolution, the 13th Congressional District shall not endorse State Representative Karen Whitsett (HD-9) in the 2020 election cycle.

Be It Further Resolved that, State Representative Karen Whitsett (HD-9) shall not hold any office, committee membership, or any other position within the 13th Congressional District, during the 2020-2022 election cycle. Within seven days of this action, this resolution may be appealed to the District Committee of the 13th Congressional District.

Be It Finally Resolved that, a copy of this resolution be transmitted to the State Central Committee of the Michigan Democratic Party, Michigan’s Democratic Congressional Delegation, Michigan’s State House and Senate Democratic leadership, and placed on the website of the 13th Congressional District Democratic Party Organization.

Adopted This 25th Day Of April Two Thousand And Twenty.
