PRESS RELEASE:

Event:
CORKTOWN CHILI COOK-OFF W/ CREOLE DU NORD

Ambassador Bridge Demonstration and Action Thursday 10/27.2011 from 5-6 p.m. at Lafayette and 18th Street

Sisters and Brothers,

As you know, the Ambassador Bridge Company continues to be a menace to our community. They do not value us at all. They have purchased our state legislature. This company continues to do whatever it wants whenever it wants no matter how much they poison, harm, or destroy our neighborhood and Southwest Detroit.

Southwest Detroit Community Benefits Coalition on the recent Bridge Vote Oct 22 2011

Media Statement by Southwest Detroit Community Benefits Coalition on the recent Bridge Vote, from Scott Brines, President:

A decision on moving forward with the New International Trade Crossing still hangs over the Delray and Southwest Detroit community where the bridge would be built. The governor, business, labor and others remain united in support of the bridge, while the owner of the Ambassador Bridge Company seems prepared to spend whatever it takes to defeat it. In the meantime, local residents of Delray continue to suffer the consequences of the indecision.

The Ambassador Bridge Company has done it again

Dear all,

The Ambassador Bridge Company has done it again. The Bridge Company is attacking the community benefits process in their paid TV advertisement. They are tainting the legislative process with their money by misconstruing the facts. They are attacking Detroit families by going after the only thing they have asked for—accountability for the health and quality of life impacts that a new bridge will bring
It is disgusting that they would use us AGAIN to contaminate this bridge debate. Instead of sticking to the facts, they are using their money and influence to confuse the process.

Imagination Station / Detroit Thursday, Oct. 13 2011 @ 7pm – 10pm; And, on Friday, October 14

Technology. Sustainability. Arts. Community. These are the elements The Imagination Station Team have incorporated into our future envisioned "creative campus" on 14th Street adjacent to Roosevelt Park. However, we know these disparate values could engender conflict. We believe conversation on these matters is needed and good. Please check out the inspiring events we have planned for TODAY and TOMORROW.
