The Michigan Progressive Talk Initiative is an organization which is dedicated to change through progressive policy implementation. Our goal here is to lead Michigan towards a more progressive future that aids in diversifying our economy, people and heritage while standing up for the things important to all people: A healthy Environment; Fair and just legal representations; a progressive education agenda aimed at students of all income levels, and promoting economic fairness for all individuals.

For too long Michigan has been an economically divided state between East and West. Today we see how that has hurt us. Southeast Michigan is leading the way to a new economic reality for the state, one that is bright positive and forward thinking, yet in West Michigan you see the same lack of opportunity for the majority that has long plagued this area. An area where power is based on authoritarian principles which directly contradict the democratic values America was founded upon. To change this it is proposed that we solicit comment from all those who have an economic stake in this area. Michigan should provide economic and educational opportunities for all its citizens.

With that said this blog is now open to solicit any and all comments. The only thing we ask is that you have a knowledge of things beyond your own backyard and that you embrace the basic tenets of the Constitution of the United States of America.
