Detroit is a city full of smart, bright people who are getting things done, even if you don’t often hear about it.

That’s one of the great appeals of participating in the third annual ARISE Detroit! Neighborhoods Rising Summit on Nov. 3 at the downtown campus of Wayne County Community College District. You will hear from real people on the front lines of change, facing and, in many cases, overcoming the challenge of blight, crime, neighborhood foreclosures and other challenges.

The summit’s 10 workshops offer an excellent opportunity to network, learn, as well as to teach others what’s working in your neighborhood.

We are all in this together.

So come on down and hear from Kim Tandy about what is being done by University Commons to revitalize business along the Avenue of Fashion in northwest Detroit, or how they nurture business into southwest Detroit from Theresa Zajac of the Southwest Detroit Business District Association.

Or learn about how to create your own neighborhood Farmers Markets from Fiona Ruddy of Eastern Market or how to do Urban Farming from Tepfirah Rushdan. At the Neighborhood Organizing workshop, you’ll be able to hear from Felecia Andrews, a woman with no grants and no formal organization, who has pulled together friends and relatives to cut lawns and board homes all summer long in city neighborhoods.

There will be also Eddie Connor, a motivational speaker, who will share information on his Boys to Books program to promote literacy in the Engaging Youth workshop, and Al Taylor, who has been doing amazing things with young people as part of his Peace Project program.

Did you know there is a mini-grant funding program for groups looking to fight blight, crime and more? You can hear more about it from the Grant Making Workshop featuring Dalton Roberson of Michigan Community Resources.

These, and more, are the answers you have been looking for.

Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of the change.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
