NEW! Platform NEWS #23

Every year, Detroit People’s Platform NEWS recognizes Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day by considering the state of the city of Detroit in relationship to the action-backed vision of Rev. Dr. King. This year, as we move to celebrate the first 10 years of DPP and are called again to organize for the future of Majority Black Detroit, we  are reflecting on the importance of principled, justice-seeking Black leadership.

This issue covers the injustice of I-375 project, the new ‘District Detroit’ community benefits process, the ongoing struggle to fund and implement Right to Counsel, the fight for bus service that meets the needs of Detroit’s disability community and how industrial projects like the AMC HQ and Stellantis’ Detroit Assembly Complex are using our tax dollars to increase pollution in our neighborhoods. 

This year, with this heightened level of injustice in the nation’s largest majority Black city, Detroit People’s Platform invite Detroiters to join us on Saturday, June 3rd as we return to Marygrove for our 10 Year Gathering. There we will continue our ‘nettlesome task’ of organizing with our neighbors to build and wield power for better outcomes for majority Black Detroit.
