Come join us at the Trumbullplex and collage postcards telling the REAL story of Detroit – not Dan Gilbert’s version. We know Detroit is not empty and downtown is not perfect. Let’s interrupt that narrative and participate in a more nuanced, thoughtful discussion. Plus fun and craftiness.
Hosted by Detroiters Resisting Emergency Management, this party is the first in a series of conversations about gentrification, displacement, and how we can organize to make Detroit equitable, diverse, and accessible to all.
One of the ways we’ve been thinking about the postcards is as a critical response to this messed up contest happening right now.
