How big of a problem is gentrification? How much affordable housing does the city need at what percentage of area median income to prevent displacement?
On Nov. 13, Stephen Henderson, host of WDET’s Detroit Today, will speaks with panelists on these topics and more at our final panel as part of our Equitable Development series. The event is free and open to the public, but please RSVP here. Food and refreshments will be provided.
We’ll also be hosting an IDEA Lab in early 2019 that will explore urgent topics to help inform and educate how Detroit can grow inclusively. Stay tuned for more information about dates, speakers, and more.
This event is part of our Equitable Development series, in partnership with Doing Development Differently in Metro Detroit, where we explore issues and stories on growing Detroit in a way that allows people from all races, classes, and abilities to participate and benefit from development.

The Equitable Development Series is made possible thanks to generous support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the Knight Foundation Fund of the Community Foundation.
