About Force Detroit
FORCE is committed to building a freer, safer Detroit. We are dedicated to connecting impacted people to opportunities to create structural solutions. Force Detroit is a culmination of interfaith, grassroots, and public sector leaders committed to having hard conversations about complex community issues, pushing boundaries, and generating creative justice-oriented solutions. We leverage media and culturally relevant strategies to connect people least likely to be engaged to civic infrastructures. Toward the goal of building a safer, freer Detroit, Force is committed to the following programs and activities:
Participatory Research – we aim to drive and capture the experiences of their constituencies and support them to create academically sound research that gives voice to otherwise ignored community concerns.
Narrative Building – pairs participatory research efforts with media creation and communications strategy to ensure that community voice is represented in public dialogue.
Coalition Development – we build relationships with Detroit’s grassroots leaders and activists to foster increased collaboration, improve and deepen relationships, and coordinate efforts for greater impact.
