Motor City Makeover 365 (MCM365)
Who doesn't love a good makeover?! Motor City Makeover 365 partners with block club clean-up efforts to keep our communities beautiful. They do this every year! Clean-ups are scheduled by council districts on specific weekends during May and June. If you and/or your neighborhood are interested, you must register with the City of Detroit; this will allow you to receive certain supplies and schedule debris pick-ups as needed. Join the beautification initiative here.
Committee on Race and Equality (CORE)
Black America is in need right now: in need of justice, understanding, change, and support. CORE acts as a safe-haven for members to have constructive, difficult conversations in a non-judgmental environment. Members can express their concerns about discriminatory treatment and/or practices based on race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, or gender identity. CORE works to increase awareness, secure equality, and celebrate the strength of diversity. Oh, this is an Advisory Committee to Chief of Police James Craig. So make your voice heard! You can find more information here.
