> Hello Everyone;
> It has been brought to our attention that a new housing development in
> Detroit, near the new stadium, offers no accessible units.  We're
> organizing a protest across the street from the development for next
> Tuesday, 6/26 at 10am.  The development is called Crosswinds Townhomes
> located on Woodward Ave. just north of I-75 and the Fox Theater
> district.  We'll gather up on the west side of Woodward across from the
> townhouses.
> This will NOT be a direct action with civil disobedience.
> As you know, ADAPT has been working for over a decade to end
> institutional bias so that people residing in nursing homes paid for
> with Medicaid dollars can use those same dollars to live in community
> settings.  When we're successful, people will need accessible places to
> live.  It is critical to demand new construction be accessible. 
> we will spread this message as wide and far as possible.
> Feel free to bring signs with messages like "We want accessible
> housing", "People with Disabilities Need Housing Too" - you get the
> idea.
> Please spread the word and be well.
> -Scott
