Third Thursday: Equity Panel Discussion

February 20 2020 | 6:00pm to February 21 2020 | 7:55pm

A recent study revealed that the equity gap in the city of Detroit is greater than it has ever been. African American home ownership has significantly decreased in the last decade, yet home ownership remains a hallmark for building generational wealth. What is happening in the midst of the city's "renaissance" to challenge and change this new finding and begin to close the gap once and for all? There are no easy answers. Be a part of the conversation, as a panel of experts engaged in equity work speak to this downward trend and what actionable steps are being taken to curb the tide. 

Featuring Rod Liggins, Director of Community Affairs for the Detroit Land Bank. Tonya Phillips, Director of Community Partnerships & Development at Sugar Law Center for Economic & Social Justice.
