Where have we been?

Where have we been?

Where are we now?

Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3

Phase 1 (2016)

We recruited stakeholders to analyze the problem, created a beginning set of system elements, and began considering a framework for a Detroit community development system.

Phase 2 (2017-2018)

We formed an Advisory Council, conducted extensive research resulting in a specific set of challenges and created Task Forces to respond to those challenges and develop test-projects for most of the elements.

Phase 3 (2019-2020)

Stakeholders will champion elements of the system, working closely with CDOs and GROs, by “test-piloting” project ideas:

  • Coordination of Capacity Building Services
  • Community Development Career Navigation Model
  • Neighborhood Vitality Success Framework
  • Neighborhood Voice and Advocacy Framework
  • At least two city-CDO funded partnerships

Simultaneously we will:

  • Activate the System Capitalization element
  • Establish a governance/oversight structure
  • Develop a process to resolve CDO coverage for all neighborhoods

Community Voting Tool

Friday, May 7

Did you know that the Federal government approved $6 billion dollars for Michigan to use to help schools deal with the crises they face from COVID-19? We need to raise our voices and let the state and our communities know how we want the money spent to build healthy and healing schools.

Use the  Community Voting Tool to show them what we need to make education better in Michigan.

These funds could go to programs such as:

  • Mental health supports and services

  • Upgrades to facilities

  • Special education support services

  • English language learner support services

  • Educational technology

  • Summer and after school programming

We know from listening sessions held last year across the state that Michigan families want to prioritize wellness and mental health through curriculums that reflect students’ identities and cultures, that include input from students and caregivers. With the extra $6 billion dollars in funding, how would you reimagine Michigan’s schools?

Want to participate in more actions to make decisions for our schools? Use the Community Voting Tool,  and sign up for alerts from the Michigan Education Justice Coalition.
