All across MI, from Keweenaw to Detroit, multi-racial, working-class Michiganders joined together with people from all walks of life to vote in record numbers, demand that every single vote was counted, and deliver our democracy. This wasn’t done in the name of a party or politician, but working-class Michiganders who create this state’s extraordinary abundance and deserve to live full, dignified lives. This is a people’s victory, and it was made in Michigan. Join us for what’s next. 

We’re celebrating and inviting folks to join us by sharing an illustration by artist Ed Kwong that features working Michiganders of every background. Download the illustration and use our toolkit to let people know that #WeMakeMichigan, together.

  • People worked together across the state, across race, class, and zipcode, to deliver democracy
  • A desperate and fearful few tried to drive wedges between us, by racial scapegoating and voter conspiracy theories trying to pin the blame on Detroit, an 85% Black city.  
  • Michiganders stood together and locked arms even more tightly to insist that our democracy belongs to everyone and demand that every voice be heard, no exceptions.
  • We *out prepared* our opposition & anticipated their moves. At every step of the way, Michiganders not only anticipated and met each challenge, but showed how everyday people can outpunch the tiny few who want to silence our voices.
  •  And we won’t stop. We got us.

Michiganders: Pledge to Defend Democracy and Keep Each Other Safe.

We ALL make Michigan. Now it’s time to rewrite the rules so to ensure we can all put food on the table and have a great life.
