DRIVE COMMITMENT CEREMONY | GESU CATHOLIC CHURCH | JANUARY 31, 2016

Rev. Michael g. Cunningham
Historic East Lake

What's going on?

  • Congregations throughout the Detroit Region are building an interfaith organization - DRIVE (Detroit Regional Interfaith Voice for Equity)

  • These members will work together to build a powerful voice on regional and local problems like:

    • quality public schools, access to good jobs, drugs/crime, mental health services, roads and public transportation, etc.

Where do we start?

  • Clergy leaders are gathering and training their church and synagogue leaders through our Core Leaders Trainings.

  • We start with campaigns to build relationships in and around the congregation and between our congregations.

  • Why? Because to make changes, we will have to be persistent and consistent - and we will have to have strong relationships with each other and in our congregations to "stay the course."

  • Each congregation's Core Team will conduct a 6-week Listening Campaign to engage members about the issues they care most about.

What's our goal?

  • We are building an organization of our congregations and allies powerful enough to be at the table with political and market sector powerful people in discussions about the issues that affect us and our families the most!

D.R.I.V.E. and the Harriet Tubman Center - Connecting Individuals, Institutions and Organizations in the Greater Detroit Metro Area!

Our mission is to build a coalition of clergy, congregations and allies, acting and advocating to create a just, equal and equitable community through congregation-based organizing.
