Marchers will gather at 3:30 p.m. at the MLK Garden, located by the east end of Welch Hall, for a brief commemorative program followed by the March, which will end at the Student Center. Individuals can join the march at any point along the route, similar to what occurred in the 1965 march.

Please forward widely! The People Against the EAA Coalition (includes Students for an Ethical Participatory Education (SEPE), EMU faculty, students, union members, and community activists) is organizing a: President Martin secretly signed into existence the Education Achievement Authority (EAA). Eastern Michigan University is currently a crucial site of struggle for the entire state. The EAA is designed to break teacher unions, privatize the management of schools, and cultivate consumer dependency on corporate technology. It also strips local communities of any democratic control, targets communities of color, and has lacked any semblance of transparency from the beginning. This, on top of the administration firing teachers from the college of education demonstrations the hollowness of their commitment to “education first.” Without EMU's participation the EAA can not exist at this time. Please join us, and the greater community to protest EMU's administration and demand they cut the contract with the EAA. Join us on Febraury 20th at Welsh Hall on EMU's campus (right across from the water tower) at 10 am to demand justice for the students of Detroit, and to stop the trend towards corporate education reform.
