Miss Representation Screening at Ferndale High School- Monday, Oct. 28

Last year, CFF coordinated carpooling to a screening of Miss Representation at Oakland University. We also donated two copies of the film to the Ferndale Public Library.

Ferndale High School and Ferndale Youth Assistance are sponsoring a screening right here in Ferndale on Monday, October 28 at 6 p.m. at the Ferndale High School Media Center.  We encourage you to watch the film and get in on the discussion about how media imagery of women affects how women and girls view themselves.

 Citizens For a Fair Ferndale to Hold Candidate Forum

On Saturday, October 26, 2013, Citizens for a Fair Ferndale (CFF) will hold a Candidate & Ballot Proposal Forum at the Ferndale Library (12:30-2:00 p.m. for the Mayoral Forum, 2:15-3:00 p.m. for the City Council Forum, 3:00-3:45 p.m. for the Proposal A Forum, and 3:45-4:00 p.m. Library Board Candidates). The event will also be recorded and submitted to WFRN for airing until Election Day. The public and the media are encouraged to attend.

CFF has invited all declared candidates, plus one participant presenting each side of the question presented to voters in Proposal A.

The format is simple:

1. Candidates are at a table in the front of the room.

2. Each Candidate will have an opportunity to give a 3 minute introduction.

3. As people come in, they are given 3 x 5 cards.  These are gathered periodically and brought to the moderator.  The moderator then poses the questions to the candidates.  Each Candidate has 2 minutes to answer each question. The order of response changes so each has a chance to be first.

4. There is a timer to help you pace answers.

5. Each Candidate will have an opportunity to give a closing statement.

CFF’s complete Forum Guidelines can be found at

CFF’s mission is to foster a community that is dedicated to the fair and equal treatment of all residents and visitors regardless of sexual orientation, race, color, religion, gender, age, height, weight, familial status, national origin, physical or mental disability.
