Your presence is vital as we collectively build a community development system for Detroit! At this year’s Summit, you can expect to:

Discuss, debate and finalize:

  • what does equitable development mean for Detroit neighborhoods?
  • how should city government, community development and neighborhoods engage and align?
  • what are the right policy goals for our neighborhoods?
  • how do we generate equity in the community development profession?

Help develop models for:

  • the “neighborhood vitality” success framework
  • building strong CDOs and Grass Roots Organizations
  • creating a pipeline of community development leaders from Detroit
  • an organized and powerful citywide neighborhood voice

Learn from guests from other cities: Boston, Cleveland and Philadelphia

Network with colleagues from philanthropy, government, intermediary organizations, academia, community development organizations and grass roots organizations.

Experience a special lunch discussion with Dr. Peter Hammer, Director of the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights discussing spatial racism.
