Irvin D. Reid and Sheila Cockrel invite you to join them for dinner and a community discussion. This is not your usual meeting! This time, you and your neighbors are acting as the mayor and city council dealing with the presense of an emergency manager. How would you handle making decisions about the crises facing our city in this critical environment?
The hurdles that Detroiters face are both financial and organizational. Detroit's leaders and its citizens are at a crossroads. Every day, city leaders face critical decisions. The success of the city hinges not only on the soundness of their decisions but also on the public's ability to understand and evaluate the choices that are available. After all, informed citizens make informed decisions. In many ways, that is the essence of democracy.
Limited free parking is available at the corner of Ferry and John R.
Admission is free. Seating is limited and reservations are required. RSVP here or call 313-577-0300.
This program is presented by the Eugene Applebaum Chair in Community Engagement and the Forum on Contemporary Issues in Society (FOCIS) at Wayne State Univeristy.

Cody High School students are uniting to take back the Cody-Rouge community, and they’re starting by planting 200 trees at the park across the street from their school. YOUTH VOICE, an affiliate of the Harriet Tubman Center that organizes Detroit youth to build their own power to create change, is partnering with the students and faculty of Cody’s three schools. The groups are also partnering with the Greening of Detroit, who will be providing 200 trees.
As of February 2013, the City of Detroit has left Stein Playfield, across the street from Cody High School, abandoned and unmaintained, with no streetlights, bathrooms, running water or usable athletic facilities.
On Saturday June 1, 2013 11am-3pm the Cody Rouge community will be coming together to clean up Stein Playfield, plant 200 trees and show the neighborhood that change is possible and happening.
Come and help beautify the park and enjoy some free barbecue!
