Three Points to Get Our Power Back & Build Generational Wealth
Create a low-cost ownership program for Detroiters that cancels the developers option and transfers land to Detroit residents. Provide homeowner and small-scale community development opportunities.
Partner with existing organizations for financial literacy, real estate, community development, and skilled trades training for those who want to develop or refine home ownership skills.
Develop strategic partnerships with banks, credit unions, and community development financing institutions (CDFIs). Educate folks on creating a cooperative funding model that creates communal wealth and resources. Prioritize economic opportunities with Black-owned businesses for bidding on jobs.
