Mailing seeking support for three bills in the Michigan House of Representatives. The bills are: HB 4831 - an amendment to the Civil Rights Act to end investment of funds from Michigan educational institutions in corporations that conduct business in or with the Republic of South Africa; HB 4838 - a bill to prohibit investment of Retirement and Pension funds in stocks of corporations conducting business in or with the R.S.A.; and HB 5446 - a bill to prohibit the deposit of Michigan surplus funds in banks that have made loans to the Republic of South Africa or to organizations, subsidiaries, and operations of corporations in R.S.A. The mailing asks churches, unions, and other organizations to pass resolutions condemning South African apartheid, calling for disinvestment from South Africa, and supporting these three bills, and to send copies of these resolutions to members of the Michigan legislature. The mailing discusses the Sullivan Principles, Perry Bullard, Virgil Smith, H. Lynn Jondahl, speakers, films, and the Peace Education Center.
