National Call for Detroit 2012

2012 is our time to provide a clear vision for an alternative way of living our lives. This summer, we are convening a national gathering in Detroit from July 1 – July 15 called Detroit 2012: {re}Imagine the World, Transform Ourselves, Fight for the Future. We are meeting in Detroit because the city’s unique history has created a space in which growing numbers of people are inspired to move beyond protest and toward visionary transformation. This paradigm shift encourages new ideas, alternative institutions, and revitalised communities. Our goal is to create a national network of visionary organisers and philosopher activists committed to self determination and {r}evolutionary change.

Come to Detroit, Engage in Visionary Organising, and experience the next American {R}Evolution!

What we Do

Through panels, workshops, and hands-on projects, participants from Detroit and across the country will come together and share their experiences of:

{re}Imagining:
Work
Education
Technology
Art
Leadership
Politics
Public Safety & Justice
Community
Health

{r}evolution
Please join us in creating the beloved community! On sunday evening, July 1st, come celebrate Grace Lee Boggs’ 97th birthday and the international debut of the documentary film “We Are Not Ghosts”. Following will be two exciting and intensive weeks during which we will gather, listen, teach, heal, work, share stories, support one another, nurture ourselves, and plan future events.
