Land, Community, and the Future of Detroit

As American cities become more desirable places to live and do business, development pressures are growing in neighborhoods and communities that have long experienced disinvestment. In Detroit, residents are leading projects that empower their communities to take ownership of land and steer the process of change.
Hear from four Detroiters who are leading projects to address long-standing issues like blight and environmental degradation, while also empowering marginalized residents to benefit from changes coming to their neighborhoods.
