Candidates & Causes
In 2018, Detroit XPAC will be working to put progressive voices in office and the expansion of public transportation options. To make a contribution to support this cause, please visit our contribution page
In 2016, Detroit XPAC supported the passage of the RTA's plan to provide Detroit, and all of its visitors, with a working transportation system. The plan did not advance, but Detroit XPAC is working with local representatives to consider alternative paths to innovative transportation options for Detroit.
In 2014, Detroit XPAC endorsed:
- Rep. Gary Peters for United States Senate (WON)
- Stephanie Chang for Michigan House of Representatives, District 6 (WON)
- Rep. Mark Schauer for Governor
We are currently evaluating candidates for endorsement. Candidates must be running for office in the State of Michigan, for local, state or federal positions.

Election day was November 8, 2016. On this year's ballot, Michiganders had the chance to vote for the millage to support public transportation. They did not pass this ballot measure, which would have increased access across several communities and provided job opportunities.
