Anishinabe Racial Justice Conference--Healing Our Community & Empowering Our People

Date: April 13-15
Place: Niiwin Akeaa Community Center, Keweenaw Bay Indian Community, Baraga
Cost: Free

This conference will offer workshops, presentations, and coalition building on racial justice. We believe in creating a safe and supportive space for Anishinaabe people, all people of color, and allies who support our work.  Native American people have often and historically been left out of discussions on racial justice in the US.  This conference seeks to change this narrative.  We seek to center Anishinaabe and all Native American people in racial justice.

Michigan utility customers may be eligible for a free furnace or boiler tune-up through a statewide energy efficiency program. Tune-ups ensure heating systems are running cleanly and efficiently, saving residents money and eliminating health and safety risks.

Blue Terra Energy is conducting the free tune-ups, normally priced at $100, for natural gas utility customers in the western Upper Peninsula. Residents must be Semco Energy Gas Company customers to qualify. Customers can call (906) 487-5342 to schedule.

The free furnace and boiler tune-ups are funded by revenue collected from a small surcharge Michigan utility customers currently pay on their monthly bills. In addition to a free tune-up, customers may also be eligible to receive a new programmable thermostat and/or new carbon monoxide detector, free of charge.
