The Building America’s Communities conversation will provide a comparative analysis between local issues and the issues the region and the nation are facing; the conversation will convene local and national leaders and experts to critically analyze the current context of various social justice issues impacting Detroit, greater Michigan, and the midwest, and propose and share evidence based policy solutions to these challenges.
