On Jan. 20, the Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration and Immigrant Rights and Fight for Equality by Any Means Necessary and Students for a Democratic Society protested on Wayne State's campus against President Donald Trump taking office.
Detroit public school teachers Steve Conn, Nicole Conaway, and BAMN released the following statement in response to today's announcements from the Michigan school reform office.
"BAMN calls on the people of Detroit to join us in building mass civil rights resistance in order to keep open every one of our precious Detroit public schools -by any means necessary," said Conn.
"We are fully confident that in this fight we can defeat Trump, DeVos, Snyder and the other proponents of the new Jim Crow and put our entire state and country back on the path towards equality and progress," said Conaway.
