What’s needed to drive economic mobility and reduce poverty in Detroit? A team of researchers from Poverty Solutions at the University of Michigan catalogued the numerous ways Detroiters have answered this question over the past decade. Their new report, “Investing in Us: Resident Priorities for Economic Mobility in Detroit,” summarizes themes and recommends ways resident input can guide future investments in the city. During this webinar, members of the research team and Detroit nonprofit leaders who contributed to this project will share key findings, and attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions.
