New Video Tells the Story of MCHR

Posted March 31st, 2015  |  News

“Bending the Arc” tells the story of the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights. Through interviews with MCHR’s founders and leaders, this short film traces its history from its founding in 1980 by three Detroit clergy wanting to provide alternative views to the religious right and respond to growing divisive elements in religion and politics — to its current involvement to establish water rights for low-income Detroit citizens and sponsorship of Freedom Tours providing young adults the opportunity to travel and better understand the history of our country’s civil rights struggle. “Bending the Arc” was produced by John Hammond and Frank Joyce.
