The Housing Project Partnership
WHO: The Housing Project Partnership (HPP) will be comprised of representatives from a range of take holder groups all needed to advance regional equity. HPP leaders will represent government, business, non-profit, faith community, regional groups, grass roots organizations and media that will serve with the Michigan Roundtable to oversee our work on regional equity and housing in Metro Detroit.
Some of our current partners in this work include: Fair Housing Center of Metro Detroit, MOSES, LISC, Fith Third Bank, TRU, Thomas M. Cooley Law School, University of Michigan School of Social Work, One D, HUD, Michigan Department of Education, Michigan Voice, Michigan Suburbs Alliance and many more.
WHAT: The Housing Project Partnership is a collaborative effort of the Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion to...
- Help people understand the structural racism which caused segregated housing in the Tri-County region.
- Set-up a truth commission with the Michigan Roundtable acting in equal partnership to expose how housing practices have segregated this region.
- Identify and implement recommendations that emerge from the truth and reconciliation process to create a more equitable region as determined by the members of the HPP.
- The HPP will be instrumental in planning the design and development of the truth commission with guidance from ICTJ (International Center for Transitional Justice)
- The HPP will work in equal partnership with the Michigan Roundtable using a consensus-based decision making model.
- Individuals will join the HPP toward the close of the truth commission to help form a regional equity action project.
WHEN: The HPP is part of a three phase project that began in Phase I with the Mock Trial of the FHA in the Fall of 2009 at Wayne State University and Spring 2010 at Cooley Law School in Auburn Hills, Phase II the HPP Working Committee and Truth Commission formation and Phase III the policy action phase which will be a direct result of the recommendations of the Truth Commission. This partnership will span over a two year period.
