In America, talent has been evenly distributed, opportunity has not. As your City of Detroit government, we believe it’s our responsibility to fight that inequality. We believe Detroit government can be a springboard for opportunity, helping Detroiters, no matter their neighborhood, achieve their dreams.
In Detroit, Opportunity is Rising.
