MCHR/Ralph Bunche Summer Institute 2018 Freedom Tour

Posted April 28th, 2018  |  News

MCHR is proud to be partnering with the Ralph Bunche Summer Institute to educate 45 Metro Detroit youth from a diverse variety of backgrounds across racial, ethnic, class, relgious, sexual orientation, and gender identities in hands-on social justice leadership tactics fromJuly 9th to July 20th, 2018. It is up to all of us to mentor the next generation of youth change makers to become the leaders in their own struggles!

We need YOUR help in raising $15,000 to cover the operational costs associated with this large and important undertaking. Funds will be used to secure transportation, room rentals, food and beverage, pay honoriums for our educators, and purchase neccesary supplies. Please help us educate these young leaders about the rich social justice heritage of our region and equip them with the tools they need to continue our struggles!

Youth will go on a local Freedom Tour to various sites with historical and continuing civil rights importance including Viola Liuzzo Park, Mohammed’s Temple No 1, the Eight Mile “Birwood Wall”, and the William Lambert Home. Participants on the Tour will take part in experiential educ​a​tional activities with local activists and educators at each of these sites.

Youth participants in the Ralph Bunche Summer Institute will also attend two overnight educational experiences- one on Wayne State University’s campus in downtown Detroit and one in historic Idlewild, M​ich.
