Event description

Description

Dear Stanton Park/18th Street Block and Hubbard Richard Neighbors!

You're invited to see, hear, and share your stories as we work toward preserving, uplifting, and advancing the neighborhood's heritage and legacy with fellow neighbors, AGI Construction and the Detroit Future Ops, Motor City Grounds Crew, Congress of Communities, and The Aadizookan.

Join us from 11:00am - 2:00pm for barbeque and share your story as we explore the following questions for honoring our neighborhood's past, present, and future legacy.

  1. Imagine it's 5 years from now, what do you see as this neighborhood's legacy looking like starting with the experiences we have now and where we've come from as a community?

  2. What might it look like when you and the community are able to benefit from development / revitalization / improvements in the neighborhood?

We believe sustainability and construction are first steps in community development. Creating strong partnerships and opportunities that support and build Detroit neighborhoods is one of our core values, and we believe there are better ways to do development that honor the neighborhood's heritage in way that lets more of our community benefit from the work that's underway.

Featuring:

The Aadizookaan (Music, Film, Design, and Storytelling), with Sacramento Knoxx as MC

Luis and Tanya Ali

And maybe you too?

For those who haven't met the AGI team, you can meet cofounders MSgt. Luis Ali, long-time community resident and advocate Tanya Ali in addition to other members of AGI who work on anything from skilled trades to sustainability strategy.

All are welcome, and you can RSVP here or on Eventbrite below to help us better prepare refreshments and light lunch for volunteers and community members:
