Detroiters Speak: Reclaiming the Commons

Creating Commons Education - What is the role of our "public" universities?
Tuesday, November 21, 2017
7:00-11:00 PM
Off Campus Location
Co-curated this semester by Diana Copeland, Will Copeland and Craig Regester, this interactive public course will focus in the first three sessions on the interconnected crises facing everyday Detroiters around water shutoffs, home foreclosures, public schooling, labor and gentrification.

In the last five sessions, however, we'll turn to an exploration and further creative development of the many grassroots community responses happening in Detroit that are pushing back against efforts to privatize practically everything in the City.
