Detroit Action is a grassroots community-based organization building power for workers and Detroiters of color throughout our metro region. A consistent and deliberate attack on our institutions has made Detroit one of the most politically and economically marginalized communities in the country. We build power and transform our communities and fight back against the policies that affect our most vulnerable communities.
Our mission is to build the power of individuals and families to challenge the root cause of poverty, advance justice, and promote human development through neighborhood-driven community organizing and civic engagement. We believe in creating a just world where everyone has housing, healthcare, quality education, and a liveable environment.
2021 is a critical election year and in order to build political power for Detroit neighborhoods, we need elected officials who’ll fight for our values in Detroit both downtown and in the neighborhoods.
