[Urgent Call to all Federation members]

Friends, and to all those supporting the rights of people with disabilities
to travel freely to and from Metro Airport.  The WCAA, (Wayne County Airport
Authority has been going through changes which now include the airport
having a new interim CEO.  One thing that has not changed, however, is that
the public bus stop is not user friendly to people who are blind or have
other disabilities.  In its efforts to  provide assistance the Airport
authority have determined that the best way to remedy this is to give us
access to a special stop we have to get permission to use by providing prior
notification to the transportation service we are using.  Once again the
Wayne County Airport Authority board of directors will be having its monthly
meeting Wednesday, February 21, 2018, and again we will be making public

Here are the details.

Meeting time: 2 PM.

Meeting location: Michael Berry Administration Building:

Kevin Clark Conference Room

11050 Rogell Drive

Building Number 602.

Detroit, MI 48202

widely to let those members who do not have access to Email know of this

voices be heard and our rights respected.
