- FOCIS: CitizenDetroit Dinner and Dialogue
- June 6 2013 at 5:30 PMInternational Institute of Metro DetroitIrvin D. Reid and Sheila Cockrel invite you to join them for dinner and a community discussion. This is not your usual meeting! This time, you and your neighbors are the mayor and council dealing with the presence of an Emergency Manager. How would you handle making decisions about the crises facing our city in this critical environment? The hurdles that Detroiters face are both financial and organizational. Detroit's leaders and its citizens are at crossroads. Every day the city leaders face critical decisions. The success of the city hinges not only on the soundness of their decisions, but also on the public's ability to comprehend and evaluate the choices that are available. After al, informed citizens make informed decisions. In many ways, that is the essence of democracy. Come join us! Admission is free. Seating is limited, and reservations are required. The event will take place at the International Institute of Metro Detroit located at 111 East Kirby in Detroit (corner of Kirby and John R). For more information, visit focis.wayne.edu. This program is presented by the Eugene Applebaum Chair in Community Engagement and the Forum on Contemporary Issues in Society (FOCIS) at Wayne State University. The Eugene Applebaum Chair and FOCIS are made possible through the generosity of alumnus Eugene Applebaum, founding chair of the Wayne State University Foundation.
