Webinar: For Our Brother Michael

August 5, 2016

Wednesday, August 10, 2016
3:00 p.m. EDT


The criminalization, prosecution and incarceration of Michael L. Johnson is exemplary of how anti-blackness, HIV stigma, homophobia, and mass incarceration converge in communities of color. Join us for our upcoming webinar where Mayo Schreiber of the Center for HIV Law and Policy (CHLP) will provide updates around Michael's case. We must continue to work for Michael's freedom.

Mayo Schreiber, Jr. is Deputy Director at the Center for HIV Law and Policy ("CHLP") in New York. The Center for HIV Law and Policy (CHLP) is a national legal and policy resource and strategy center working to reduce the impact of HIV on vulnerable and marginalized communities and to secure the human rights of people affected by HIV. Mayo is a federal criminal defense attorney with twenty-five years of experience in private practice. Previously he was a Pro Se Law Clerk at the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. He was also a Monitor to the Honorable William Wayne Justice, Chief Judge, United States District Court, Eastern District of Texas, in Ruiz v. McCotter, a case involving confinement conditions for all prisoners incarcerated by the state of Texas.
