Tell US Airways: Discrimination won't fly

Jul 18 2011

DeShon Marman was taken off of a US Airways flight, arrested, shackled, and jailed after airline staff confronted him about his sagging pants.

However you feel about sagging pants, it's clear that US Airways' behavior was inappropriate and discriminatory. Targeting and criminalizing a young Black man because of appearance should not be an acceptable practice for US Airways or any other corporation. Please join us in calling on US Airways to apologize to DeShon and his family and explain steps the company will take to ensure that something like this doesn't happen again.

This campaign has concluded.
