​For better or worse, the City of Detroit has been used for decades as a case study for some of society's most serious economic, environmental and social concerns. From the collapse of the auto industry to its history of racial tension, Detroit's revitalization is analyzed by other U.S. cities facing similar problems. ​Detroit is reaching a turning point as climate and environmental justice activists fight to cast off the rust and turn the city toward a green future.  Join us this Thursday, January 29th at 2 PM EST as Kimberly Hill Knott, Director of Policy at Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice,  discusses Detroit's ongoing journey to becoming a global model of a vibrant urban center where all thrive in environmental, economic and social health.
