Truth and Reconciliation Commission Forming in Metro Detroit

FHC Southeast applauds the Housing Project Partnership of the Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion for working to establish a Truth and Reconciliation Commission as one of their goals.

According to the Fair Housing Center of Metropolitan Detroit, a member of the Housing Project Partnership, the Michigan Roundtable is one of the Detroit area civil rights organizations working to further fair housing opportunities by helping to create more welcoming and diverse communities in the metropolitan Detroit area.

The Housing Project Partnership “invites major institutions, organizations and residents of Metropolitan Detroit to participate in a truth and reconciliation process to examine the context, causes and consequences of structural and institutional racism in the region. By understanding and coming to terms with the forces generating the patterns of racial privilege and oppression that hold us all back, we can create a more just, equal and prosperous future for all”.
