Free Brake Light Clinic

Sat, Jul 14, 2018 - 11:00am to 3:00pm


Volunteers from the Huron Valley chapter of Democratic Socialists of America will fix brake lights for area residents completely free of charge on July 14th, 2018. This free event is part of a series of direct actions organized to benefit the greater community.

On May 26th, volunteers helped 20 Ypsilanti residents replace their car’s tail lights free of charge. In a fortuitous coincidence, they fixed one women’s tail light after she was stopped by a police officer who directed her to the clinic. This public service aims to help the most vulnerable Huron Valley workers and residents retain access to reliable transportation, preventing unnecessary police stops, expensive tickets and fines, and possible court appearances. By reducing the opportunity for police stops that disproportionately affect vulnerable populations, the Huron Valley DSA works for its vision of a more just, humane, and free society.
