Two years before the pandemic, ⁦@Ford⁩ made a billion-dollar bet that tech talent wants to work in hip urban centers close to dining, etc…

An economist at Ford’s rival @GM sees a new trend in where people want to work snd eat lunch.

He may Rest In Peace, but the things he fought for are still a problem eight years later and there is only one man too blame for those problems.

In 2013 Duggan’s experience is less than Adams in 2021. Did this affect the lack of progress by the Duggan administration?
If you review Duggan’s record, as he stated, he failed everywhere. Image
Then the next election
Duggan’s slogan was ‘promises made , promises kept’ which was a lie by his own measure. The same goes for what he has stated for 2021. Image

⚠️ Why does this pop-up vaccination site look so empty? Because many people don’t know it exists. It’s not included in vaccines[.]gov, vacunas[.]gov, via the text message service, or Google Maps

This isn’t unique to Detroit— it’s happening all over the country /1
cc @DetHealth
Q: Is the site new?
A: Not really, it’s one of a several #COVID19 vaccination hubs set up by the Detroit Health Department in partnership w/ Detroit Public Schools Community District

That particular site offers doses every Wednesday /2
detroitk12.org/Page/15621

cc @Detroitk12
Q: Are there other options?
A: Not for kids living in that zip code. In fact, according to vaccines[.]gov there are only 35 pediatric vax sites in *all* of Detroit, #Michigan that have doses in stock

~50K kids eligible to get vaxed live in #Detroit

That’s ~1425 kids per site

Just got assaulted attempting to cover an anti-eviction march in Detroit this afternoon. A member of the protest ‘security’ ran up, grabbed my camera and forced me against a building #Detroit #DetroitProtests
A man wearing an Antifa pin committed the first assault during the march. Camera stopped a few times while he attempted to steal it. Eventually, others in the group urged him aside to release me from against the building. #Detroit #Antifa #DetroitProtests
“You’re not f***ing welcome here.” A man wearing a Press patch then accosts me and tries to force me to leave, as the crowd marched through Greektown in Detroit #Detroit #DetroitProtests

🔎 'Corporate concentration in the US #food system makes food more expensive and less accessible for many Americans' 💵🌽🇺🇸

🗞️ Excellent new piece in the @ConversationUS by @hendricksonm & IPES-Food's own Phil Howard 👇🏾

Quick thread! 🧵/1

theconversation.com/corporate-conc…
"We’ve closely followed #corporate consolidation of food production, processing and distribution in the U.S. over the past 40 years. In our view, this process is making #food less available or affordable for many Americans," say Hendrickson & Howard. /2
"Consolidation has placed key decisions about our nation’s #foodsystem in the hands of a few large companies, giving them outsized influence to #lobby policymakers, direct food and industry #research and influence #media coverage." /3

did you know that #Detroit once had a #Chinatown? it was raized twice due to urban renewal. these same racist policies also displaced Black Bottom/Paradise Valley and Latinx community along Bagley/96 intersection. MGM Casino is where the first Chinatown was located.
while metro #Detroit likes to present itself as racially, culturally and ethnically diverse, it is not racially, culturally or ethnically integrated. we're all concentrated into separate communities bc urban planning is inherently racist, anti Black and anti Indigenous.
until we address racial covenants like urban renewal, block busting, redlining, predatory lending and housing practices, neo-colonial practices like mass foreclosures, school closures, water shutoffs, land grabbing and gentrification will perpetuate displacement of BIPOC folx.

TODAY: The Senate Oversight Committee will hear testimony related to #absentee counting in #Detroit. The two previous #ElectionIntegrity hearings were joint with House members. Today’s is only on the Senate calendar.
Here’s a portion of a motion filed Sunday by Sidney Powell related to one of the remaining election suits in Michigan.

It will be interesting to see how testimony goes today — and who delivers it — given this requests certain affidavits be sealed.
You can stream the hearing here: woodtv.com/news/michigan/…

There is a clarion call now to embrace the @GOP so the nation can "heal" and unify. Resist that. Resist erasing the history of the past 4yrs and what has transpired and how dangerous and damaging it has been to the fabric of this nation as well as to individual lives.
1/
You may think #resistance is over because #BidenHarris were elected. But the same @GOP who elected and supported Trump at the expense of American lives remains in power. They still ensconced a judiciary that values a small group of religious extremists over public health.
2/
Absolving criminals who tried to subvert democracy, erase the will of the people and invalidate Black votes in #Philadelphia and #Detroit cannot be sanctioned under guise of "unity." There can be no unity with people who are opposed to our core democratic values.
