Detroit: On The Road To Reinvention says
Detroit: On the Road to Reinvention examines the critical issues confronting Detroit voters in the 2017 elections through the lens of the 1967 Rebellion. These issues include: 1) anti-blackness and othering; 2) displacement of long-term Detroiters due to school closures, water shutoffs and illegal tax foreclosures; 3) regional injustice; and 4) the need for equitable forms of development. We must explore these issues' deep, historical roots to fully understand the challenges facing Detroit today.

Join us for this special kick-off event to learn from some of Detroit's best organizers on the historical context of the 1967 Rebellion and our continued fight today against the issues facing our city. The program will include guided visioning exercises so that we, as a community, can reclaim our hope and vision for Detroit.

Reception starts at 5:30 p.m. followed by panel discussion at 6 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

This community event has been organized by:
Detroit Equity Action Lab of Wayne State University Law School, Detroit Historical Society, Michigan Voice, Detroit People's Platform, MOSES, Cair Michigan, We the People of Detroit
