Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Michigan United

Detroit, MI



This grant supports Michigan United in its efforts to continue and expand its civic engagement work with a focus on supporting immigrant communities with its Michigan Organizing Project. Michigan United is a statewide coalition of 80 institutions, including faith, community, civil rights, business, social services, and labor organizations, that use grassroots organizing to fight for racial and economic justice. Kresge support will help Michigan United launch a new civic engagement effort focused on new Americans (immigrants and the children of immigrants) as well as African-Americans, Latinos, Arab-Americans, women, and low-income white families.
