Reimagining the Region:
How can the city of Detroit and its first suburbs work together to create a vibrant and equitable region for the future?
The Reimagining the Region dialogue will feature a moderated panel with state legislators, policymakers and round table discussions with members of the community. Filmmaker Andrea Torrice will open the discussion with clips from her documentary film The New Metropolis.
This forum is part of The New Metropolis national civic engagement dialogue series on revitalizing America’s older communities. It is made possible through the generous support of the Ford and Surdna Foundations.
