Wyandotte Public Schools Administration Building
639 Oak St., Wyandotte, MI
((six blocks west of Biddle/Jefferson south of Ford St./Northline Rd.)
We urge you to join us on Thursday, Aug. 30 at the Wyandotte Public Schools Administration Building, 639 Oak St., Wyandotte (six blocks west of Biddle/Jefferson south of Ford St./Northline Rd.) at 10 AM sharp.
African American students and white friends, at the middle school, have been victims of racial threats, bullying and intimidation for over 14 months! This situation has repeatedly been brought to the attention of the principal, the school board, the superintendent of schools and the police who have refused to do anything. The cops have harassed the parents who brought the complaints. One of those who threatened the children is now in jail – only because he assaulted a cop who went to talk to him. Several others, friends of his, are continuing the threats.
The parents have called for a picket line from 10 AM to 11 AM Thursday. Be there to stand with the students and their parents – let Wyandotte know that we won’t put up with this. For more information call 313-680-5508.
