Report: Fighting for Equity in Development: The Story of Detroit’s Community Benefits Ordinance
Fighting for Equity documents the struggle for Detroit's first Community Benefits Ordinance (CBO) in Detroit, the inequalities that it aims to address, and the way in which the CBO can further propel the community benefits model.
