to exercise your rights as a citizen

In this workshop we will engage in writing effective letters to promote civic action. The timing of this workshop is designed to encourage public comment on the Underground Injection Permit for a well near Leonard and Dequindre Roads before the October 19th deadline. You will leave the workshop with a completed letter as well as a template and tips for future letters. Bring a laptop computer and/or materials for writing.

 

Workshop leader Rebecca Manery is a published writer and local resident. Dr. Manery holds a Ph.D. in English and Education from the University of Michigan and has taught writing at the University of Michigan, Ball State University and Northeastern Illinois University.
