This series of gatherings was initiated as “DETROIT 2012: Re-imagine the World, Transform Ourselves, Fight for the Future”. A two week program, it provided activists from around the country with a chance to experience the Visionary Organizing being done in Detroit. What it is and what it looks like.
The theme of the 2nd event was: “DETROIT 2013: A Time for Resistance”.
The 2014 theme is: “DETROIT 2014: Building a National Network.” The National Network participants joined the New Work, New Culture, Community Production Conference in Detroit, in October, 2014.
We gathered again in the Summer of 2015, in conjunction with a weeklong celebration of Grace Lee Boggs’s 100th birthday.
Following Grace Lee Boggs’s death on October 5, 2015, a memorial celebration was held in Detroit on Oct. 30, 2015.
