The Detroit Environmental Agenda (DEA) is ready—

for you to read,

to support, and most importantly,

to use to make Detroit the safe and healthy place we know it can be.

The DEA represents the voices of a diverse range of stakeholders in Detroit’s environment—from ordinary citizens to activists, policy wonks to on-the-ground implementers. It wouldn’t exist without the committee of 10 organizations who worked over the last two years to make it happen and without the scores of people in every one of Detroit’s Districts who were willing to fill out forms, come to neighborhood meetings, and tell us what conditions are and what they wish they would be.

Now we have information. Now we have tools. Now we can get to work.

First step: We’ve polled all of our candidates for City Council and Mayor about the state of Detroit’s environmental infrastructure, and what they would do if elected. HERE is what they had to say—clear and simple, and in their own words.

NOW is always the best time to say yes to a cleaner, healthier, safer Detroit. Let’s be who we really want to be.
