PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO Declare the month of September “National Detroit Month.”
Detroit birthed the American middle class. It served as the Arsenal of Democracy during WWII. Its cultural products – from cars to Motown to techno – have influenced modern American existence more than those of any other city.
Beyond its historical contributions to American life, Detroit will inform the development of American cities in the 21st century through innovative approaches to addressing contemporary challenges.
Throughout September, Detroit will be the most exciting city in the U.S. Events that month include Urban Innovation Exchange, Detroit Design Fest, Dlectricity, Techonomy, NewCo, Meeting of the Minds, Detroit Homecoming, and more.
To honor Detroit’s many contributions – past, present, & future – to the U.S. & the world, please declare September “National Detroit Month.”
