ST. MATTHEW’S/ ST. JOSEPH’S CHURCH
8850 WOODWARD – DETROIT, MICHIGAN 48202
If you believed Detroit’s bankruptcy was necessary you need to hear Professor Peter J. Hammer’s presentation on Connecting the Dots- Detroit’s Bankruptcy at DAREA’s Town Hall Meeting. This bankruptcy was not necessary! Using retirees to reduce Detroit’s debt was unnecessary and unconscionable, retirees were used as a scapegoat!
Wake Up Detroit, Wake Up Retirees!
SPECIAL PRESENTATION: DETROIT’S BANKRUPTCY, CONNECTING THE DOTS!
Professor Peter J. Hammer
Professor of Law & Director, Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights, WSU Law School
“…any legitimate analysis of the Detroit Bankruptcy and the City’s Plan of Adjustment must be situated in the context of the Three R’s Race, Regionalism and Reconciliation. These are the root causes of Detroit’s current financial crisis and yet they are completely absent from the report.”
Quote from Peter J. Hammer’s letter to Judge Stephen W. Rhodes on the Evaluation of the “Expert Report of Martha E.M. Kopacz Regarding the Feasibility of the City of Detroit Plan of Adjustment, September 1, 2014.”
