"Detroit Is Us" Community Day Virtual Campaign Launch Event

to
After a period focused on collecting stories, young people from our community, Own Your Story Ambassadors, took the compiled information and designed a story-based, media campaign that reflects us and what it means and will mean to be Black in Detroit. The campaign theme our young people decided on is “Detroit is Us.” 

Join us for the virtual portion of the "Detroit Is Us" Community Day and Campaign Launch Event. The day kicks off with a scavenger hunt across the city (8a - 4p), but culminates with the virtual "Detroit Is Us" campaign launch event (4p - 7p). Our event will feature:

  • a virtual Black owned vendor expo, highlighting local black businesses and in celebration of Black Owned business month
  • conversation sessions with subject matter experts on the topics of Economic Development, Health + Wellness, Home Ownership/Entrepreneurship, and Education 
  • the reveal of "Detroit is Us" visuals
  • a talent showcase 
  • and a  virtual after party!

We're excited about the campaign reveal, and subsequent campaign launch, because our people will see, experience, and be reminded of our beauty, ingenuity and collective strength as we come together to drive social change in our neighborhoods.
