Grantees New Work Collective Detroit

The New Work Collective of Detroit promotes a "New Economy", "New Work", and a "New Culture" of work as a constructive response to unemployment due to the de-industrialization of Detroit. We see opportunity to take back our city's collective power as an urban mecca by creating alternative working systems that empower, mobilize, and support local Detroiters in earning a living, doing the things we love in addition to building our communities. This way, many of us can survive the devastating wave of capitalism, rather than continuing to individually spend time pumping blood, sweat, and dollars into a debt-based economy full of rich, yet anti-black, people hating, private business owners, and politicians.
