For those of you who don't follow us on Facebook or Twitter, here's the latest on the Catherine Ferguson Academy in Detroit. Principal Asenath Andrews was informed this week that the school will be closed permanently on next Friday, June 17.
Here's what you can do to help.
- If possible, please attend the rally at noon on June 16 at the site of the Academy. If you can't attend but want to help with the rally, BAMN is taking donations to rent buses and vans to bring people from Metro Detroit who don't have cars.
- Contact school district officials and the media. The Save the Catherine Ferguson Academy Facebook page has contact information. If you use Facebook, you should follow them to keep up with the latest information.
- All Our Lives has set up a Tumblr page where you can upload notes, pictures, or videos of support for the students and faculty at the school. Let them know that people from all over are watching and wishing them well!
