A good read about one of the authors of Michigan's Prop 3 (putting abortion and related heath care in the state constitution) and the citizen led steps going back several years, including the 2018 Proposals, that paved the way for the blue wave success Michigan had this year. We couldn't count on the gerrymandered legislature to get things done, so we the people took things into our own hands via petition drives. It's important to use the guardrails of democracy to fight against the authoritarian trends from the right.
@MSUHiker Yes. In Pennsylvania, we've been able to get some hard won reforms and we are going to get more. Michigan is a great success story!
