Support the Washtenaw ID Project

Because no one should have to live in the shadows of their own community, the Washtenaw ID Project advocates for the creation of an accessible county ID that recognizes every resident as a person before the law and as a valuable member of Washtenaw County. The Washtenaw ID Task Force is comprised of local government officials, law enforcement officials, human service organizations and community advocates working to gather information on the nature of civic problems faced by those without ID, evaluate solutions implemented in other jurisdictions and propose suitable methods for resolving identification issues in Washtenaw County.

Synod Community Services’ CEO Keta Cowan and Executive Assistant Janelle Fa’aola have been the Chair and Vice Chair of the Washtenaw ID Task Force from the beginning of this journey over 2 years ago. It has finally come time for the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners to vote on the Washtenaw County ID Program.

Please come support us through our fundraising efforts and at our upcoming vote!

Join us for an elegant evening over a fine dining experience at Sava’s Restaurant in downtown Ann Arbor. A $50 ticket will get you into an appetizer mix & mingle and hearing from guest speaker Washtenaw County Board of Commissioner Chair, Yousef Rabhi and Michigan State Representative, Jeff Irwin over a decadent seated 3-course meal. A portion of ticket prices are tax-deductible and include gratuity.
