At a critical moment in Detroit’s evolution as the nation’s largest majority Black city, the Detroit Housing Justice Network Gathering seeks to build cohesion and capacity among organizers and activists. Against the backdrop of one of the most segregated metropolitan regions in the nation, the network gathering will offer a space for critical dialogue and analysis, along with the voices of those most impacted. Discussions will center around the history of race and class struggles in Detroit’s housing landscape and how those patterns are repeating themselves in today’s hyper and privatized development activities.
Goals of this Network Gathering include:
  • Centering Race, Class, Intersectionality of Housing Justice Issues (ex: water shut-offs, transit, etc)
  • Centering the history of Race and Class in Housing Justice struggles in Detroit
  • Centering the work being done on Housing Justice issues led by long-time Detroit Residents
  • Exploring Detroit as Contested Space- Trends of Inequitable Development and Racial Injustice in Revitalization Efforts that Threaten Neighborhood Survival.
  • Sharing Best Practices and strategies: Walking through a model Comprehensive Housing Plan

This network gathering is invite-only.
Coordinators of this network gathering are Amina Kirk, Tristan Taylor, Tewonia Edwards, Akua Hill, Julie Pedtke, and Jordan Millwood.
