Michael L. Johnson forum
Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2015 One Struggle KC organized a forum;
- October 10, 2015 marks the two-year anniversary of Michael L. Johnson’s arrest. Since that time, 23-year old Michael has faced stigmatizing media coverage, a grueling trial, and was sentenced to a horrific 30 1/2 years in prison under HIV criminalization laws in Missouri.
- The prosecution and incarceration of Michael Johnson highlighted many of the ways in which policing, racist criminal justice practices and homophobia intersect – and led to a beautiful statement of love and support from 116 Black gay men, as well as several strategic discussions about advancing solidarity frames between the HIV decriminalization movement and #BlackLivesMatter at the historic first-ever Movement for Black Lives (#M4BL) National Convening that occurred in Cleveland, Ohio on July 22-24.
