A petition in support of James White—a Detroit man who alleges workplace discrimination because of his HIV-positive status—has thousands of signatures, according to a Change.org statement. James Harris, a University of Oklahoma student who directs an HIV/AIDS action group on campus, started the petition on Change.org. Great Expressions Dental Centers denies any wrongdoing, but the Detroit office of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ruled that there was “reasonable cause” to believe that White was discriminated against because he has HIV. Attorneys for White are now preparing to sue the dental office.
