Happy Friday everyone! It’s hard to believe we are half way through 2010! Good thing for me, this time of the year usually signals a vacation and I’m so ready!
Anyway, in today’s post, I wanted to give you a quick update on something I talked about a couple of months ago, Detroit Reverse. If you recall, from August 2 – 6, 500 students and leaders from the City and Suburbs will converge on the campus of Wayne State University. They will stay in the dorms “with the goal of identifying destructive systems in our culture and building relationships that will fight against them.”
The vision for year one of Detroit Reverse is to build and grow relationships between 2 areas of southeast Michigan that have traditionally been at odds and made assumptions about one another. The long term vision hopes this can grow into multiple locations over the next 5 years and truly having an impact on the community and the region.
Imagine just how impactful this will be. 500 people united and passionate about something and driving change in a region desperate for it. Who knows, maybe this might have an impact on my Detroit Lions too!
Now how do you turn vision into action? Well you can certainly help. Sponsors are needed to help support our students financially. It costs $149 per student to experience Reverse. You can participate by donating online at the Detroit Reverse website. Please consider helping out this group students by investing in their future.
