CALL TO WITNESS by Sherry Blackman

Call to Witness by Sherry Blackman: A true and harrowing story about a woman, Jane Gagliardo, who was an employee at a large company in Pennsylvania, but fired after working there for over a decade as a star employee once she discloses that she has Multiple Sclerosis. Discouraged but not beat, she decides to face the odds and bring light to a systemic problem in the corporate world. She hires an attorney, and together they take a legal stand against a multi-billion-dollar pharmaceutical company against all the odds. Her 2002 Landmark case is responsible for changing the law about the way large corporations are permitted to treat special needs workers and those facing discrimination in the workplace.

Join me on Thursday, July 20, 2017, 8pm-10pm on Sistah Chat Radio–Gynesis, when we sit down and speak with the author about the case and the woman behind this remarkable change.
