Like #BlackLivesMatter, #BlackHomesMatter is more than a moment — it’s a movement.
The virtual historic #BlackHomesMatter event took place on Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2021, 6PM ET. Watch the video here.
The City of Detroit and Wayne County have stolen tens of thousands of homes and generations of wealth from Detroit homeowners.
Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, Dr. Cornel West, and Rev. Dr. William Barber II spoke out against Detroit’s illegally inflated property taxes, which have caused the greatest number of property tax foreclosures in any city since the Great Depression.
Join us to call on Michigan’s Governor, Gretchen Whitmer, to investigate and end this injustice and create a plan to compensate Detroit homeowners who have overpaid or lost their homes.
The event ends with a performance from Detroit's legendary gospel artists, The Clark Sisters.
