Community Organizing Training

DREAM trains our volunteer leaders in modern organizing techniques, using learnings from Marshall Ganz, Inner-City Muslim Action Network, Faith in Action, the New Organizing Institute, and decades of collective experience. We layer in stories and examples from the prophetic narrative to equip our leaders with the skills and inspiration to make a difference in their community.

Coalition for Property Tax Justice

From 2011-2015, a quarter of Detroit’s homes were driven into property tax foreclosure, the vast majority of which occurred after having been over-assessed by the city. The damage done by the Wayne County Tax Foreclosure Auction to Detroit’s neighborhoods can never be underset-stated.

Today, our coalition is focused on stopping the continued over-assessments, preventing owner-occupied homes from being auctioned, and providing a path to compensation and dignity restoration to the tens of thousands of Detroit’s who lost their homes after illegal over-assessments from the city.

Longfellow Block Club

The Longfellow Block Club is our city-registered, area-wide neighborhood association. We meet monthly as a group, and also maintain relationships with our District Manager’s office, local police precinct, city council office, and more.

Together, we’re building relevance and influence for our neighborhood, so that we can never again be written off as a neighborhood not worth saving.
