Detroit, MI



"The Fannie Lou Hamer Political action Committee evolved from the immortal words from whom it was named. "I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired." In the mid-eighties, the need for better political education for the people of the city of Detroit became very apparent. A small group of Detroit citizens who lived in northwest Detroit, led by Reverend Wendell Anthony Pastor of fellowship Chapel, decided to answer the call. This group organized and formed the Political Education Committee which became known as the Fannie Lou Hamer Political Action Committee (PAC) founded by Reverend Wendell Anthony. "Sick and tired" of being neglected by the political process, the PAC met regularly to discuss current issues. In addition, this group stage several open forums featuring various public officials and candidates for political office who were called upon to speak to the issues affecting the community. This is without regard to race, religion, sex or creed."
