Event: March 23 --- Detroit Declaration coming together!


Dear Detroit Declaration Signer,

Thank you for signing the Detroit Declaration!

In our last email, we asked Detroit Declaration signers to nominate political candidates who should be given the chance to earn the support of this movement.

Now, the drafters are pleased to announce the first public event where you can explore this and other ways to engage with the movement.

On March 23, at 5:30 p.m., we'll celebrate civic engagement by coming together to discuss the Declaration and movement, and to watch and respond to Mayor Bing's first State of the City Address.

We want this movement to be transparent and responsive, and we hope to answer all of your questions about who is behind this and what we want to do.

On the 23rd, we'll give a short presentation that explains the origins of the Declaration, introduces you to the drafters, and updates you on the candidate nominations you submitted. More importantly, we'll explore, with your help, the different avenues we believe can be used to advance the Declaration’s principles -- by getting involved with elections, advocating for solutions, or taking personal actions.

Declare Detroit, along with Model D, invite you to participate in our first major meeting.

Who: YOU
What: Detroit Declaration Public Forum & State of the City Viewing Party
Where: The Majestic Theater, 4120 Woodward Avenue, Detroit, MI 48201
When: Tuesday, March 23 (doors open at 5:30; forum begins at 6:00)
Why: Because the people of this movement need to get to know each other and our city's leaders.

This event is presented by Model D Media. Free and open to the public. Please register in advance here:


Join us to plan how you can use the Declaration to move Detroit forward!
