With Rev. Edward Pinkney and Maureen Taylor.
- A grassroots candidate for Detroit City Council on a program of water, healthcare, education, for all. Her campaign was stolen by powerful forces who could not allow her to have a legal platform to expose the treachery that goes on in City Hall. A candidate with a similar name (Morino Taylor, who no one ever saw) was placed on the ballot to siphon votes. A suit was filed challenging the outcome .
- A leader in the fight for a Water Affordability Plan for families who cannot afford the skyrocketing cost of water and against the privitizaton of water.
- Michigan Welfare Rights Organization hosted a “People's Meet and Greet Celebration” for the Venezuelan Ambassador. This meeting with Detroiters and Venezuelans was the beginning of a new dialogue between communities to eradicate poverty.

Welfare Rights Movement 50th Anniversary
Welfare Rights Movement 50th Anniversary June 25, 2016
When Bill Clinton signed the 1996 welfare reform it was genocide. The law said we no longer have a right to survive! In Flint, we are struggling to survive with the poisoning of our families: seizures, miscarriages, children diagnosed with lead poisoning --babies asking: Momma, does this mean I can't go to college? Does it mean we're going to die? We told Pres Obama: We want clean water now. If we don't get it, shut it down! We want not just water but "water rights" taken away by emergency mgrs. -- Claire McClinton, Flint Democracy Defense League — with Claire McClinton, Maureen Taylor and Mary Bricker-Jenkins.
