WHY DONATE TO OUR CAUSE?
The biggest reason is this; what ever happens to us, in court, will be imposed upon you at some time in the future. In short what happens to us will happen to you.
If you, or a family member, receives, or will receive, any type of governmental pension or benefits you will feel the effect of our court case. This includes teachers, employees of the State of Michgian, employees of any county or municipality in Michigan, and anybody else who works for a governemental unit within the State of Michigan. We believe once the public sector has been "conquered' this will start to trickle down and infiltrate the private sector. WE simply cannot allow any of this to happen.
All of our futures are at stake here. Please contibute what you can to stop this oprression of retirees. Please send donations to APRA 14921 College Allen Park, MI 48101. APRA is a non-profit organization, which means your dontions are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law.
