Hold the System Accountable: Pack the Court w/ C4DJ!

Date: 
Thu, Oct 10, 2019 - 2:00pm to 5:00pm

City:

Join Collective 4 Disability Justice as we stand behind Baba Baxter Jones in court room 226 to show the City of Detroit government that we will not remain silent while it sweeps ADA and disability justice under a political rug. The city has filed a dangerously irresponsible motion to dismiss the remainder of his civil/disability rights and personal injury case. Help us pack the court while Baba champions forward with a request for reconsideration of Judge Avern Cohn's ableist decision to throw out the disability-related counts (https://www.leagle.com/decision/infdco20190610797)

Why should we have to live with a city that remains unwilling to comply with disability law, putting our lives at risk? Why stand by and watch while a local government sets an ableist precedent with national implications? Please take a moment to watch this brief video detailing the story behind this case; https://vimeo.com/232734769
