Staff and members repeat a common refrain: “Detroit Action is my political home”. A place where I can learn, build relationships and create the type of community that we deserve. Regardless of immigration status, race, or gender identity, all can find safety, support, and solidarity here. Everyone who comes through our doors with an individual story of abuse and exploitation finds that they are not alone – that in collectivizing our experiences and voices, we can build the power to change not just one case, but entire systems.

Our organizing model integrates:

Deep Community Organizing to transform the systems and power structures impacting our communities
Policy reform and innovation to make our democracy truly accountable to all of us by rewriting unjust rules and practices
Celebrations of culture and life that deepen relationships and rebuilds the bonds of community
Key Survival Services to tackle discrimination, abuse and poverty and their impact on the lives of Detroiters
Radical Civic Engagement and Advocacy to shape our electorate and gain the type of wins necessary to wield power
Transformative Political Education and Training to develop members ability and capacity to lead our organization, our movement, and our community
