At CEDAM, we believe that community development is a primary channel to promote equity. Our efforts focus on building vibrant communities across Michigan in order to uplift residents and offer inclusive spaces for all. To achieve this, we have convened a diverse coalition of members from across the community economic development sector who share these goals and equip them with the tools, training, and resources necessary to advance their regions and spark ripples of social and economic change throughout the state. We also advocate on state and federal levels for policy priorities that address systemic racism in the areas of anti-poverty, affordable housing, community economic development, and economic inclusion.
