Learning to Object: Workshop planned for anti-PoA filings

Learning to Object: Workshop planned for anti-PoA filings

The Moratorium NOW! Coalition, a group originally formed to stop foreclosures, evictions and utility shutoffs in Detroit, is stepping in to help people who object to the city’s proposed Plan of Adjustment and Disclosure Statement and want to share their opinions and insight with Bankruptcy Judge Steven Rhodes.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m., Monday, March 17 and will take place at 5920 Second Ave., Detroit. The event is also being promoted by Detroiters Resisting Emergency Management, a coalition of organizations that have consistently objected to the state’s emergency manager law and the Detroit bankruptcy and developed the “People’s Plan for Restructuring Toward a Sustainable Detroit.”

At the workshop, the groups will share their readable instructions and a form that can be used to file an objection with the court. Monday’s workshop will further explain the process to formally object. The deadline for such filings for retirees is June 30.
