DETROIT, Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hispanic and non-Hispanic Citizens, working families, community groups, labor organizations (excellent visuals opportunity) such as AFSCME, UAW and SEIU.

What: Metro Detroit residents to gather outside event hosted by the Society of Hispanic Business Owners and Professionals to call on Gov. Snyder to stop tearing Michigan apart with his right-wing agenda attacking working families.

When: 5:30 p.m.7:30 p.m., TODAY, Monday, December 10, 2012

Where: El Nacimiento Restaurant, 7400 West Vernor in S.W. Detroit, MI 48208

Why: Over the last several days there has been an unprecedented amount of grassroots action across Michigan telling Governor Snyder to end this attack on the working people. That effort continues today and cumulates with a large rally at the capital in Lansing on Tuesday, December 11. Instead of uniting to find solutions that strengthen our state -- so all working families can have a shot at the American Dream, Snyder, backed by his corporate CEO funders, is choosing to tear the state apart by attacking working Michiganders with dangerous laws that would weaken our families, suppress their voices and divide us all. People from across the region come together to learn more about this right-wing attack on working families and how to oppose it in the coming months.
