MBD Talks, Episode 1

What issue moves you to ACTION?

On Friday, August 21, 2020 Detroit People's Platform hosted the first MBD Talks. Based on the idea of creating "TED Talk-like" content that resonates with everyday Detroiters merged with a debate "competition" to make it interactive and energetic. While we experienced anticipated technological difficulties our presenters overcame these hurdles to share some of these vital calls to action. We want to THANK and CONGRATULATE all our presenters and their coaches Lacy Dawson and Miguel Pope.
