"Seeking Justice Together"
“O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm for Allah, witnesses in justice, and do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Be just; that is nearer to righteousness.” (5:8)
Welcome to the Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion 2019 Ramadan Appeal homepage.
This is the fifth consecutive Ramadan Appeal, begun by our former board chair and dear colleague, Ghalib Begg.
During the 78 years, the Roundtable has been standing against harm to our neighbors because of their religion, race or other identities, we have enjoyed a long history with the Muslim community.
"We Dont Want Them"
Race & Housing Exhibit Overview
The “We Dont Want Them” Traveling Exhibit is part of the Race2Equity Community Engagement Campaign. The exhibit has toured throughout Metro Detroit since 2010 and has been viewed by hundreds of thousands of people. The exhibit has been in communities at libraries, schools, colleges, places of worship, and business organizations.
The “We Dont Want Them” Traveling Exhibit serves as a tool to begin looking deeper into the issues of racial equity in Metro Detroit. The exhibit supports our value of looking into our history to understand our current story and plan for our future. As a mobile exhibit, it can be seen by almost anyone—anywhere. The exhibit includes a variety of programming components including:
K-12 Supplemental Curriculum Kit
Detroit Youth Voice Art Project - an arts-infusion history project,
guided tours and lunch and learns,
guest speakers and local historians, and
our newest Next Generation Educators’ Institute – a Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion training for educators
