Detroit Strong

  • Detroit Strong

  • The Office of Equity, Advocacy, and Civil Rights invites all of DPSCD to celebrate the strength and resiliency of our community during the month of January.  We are privileged to live in this great city that has tremendous character, pride, and commitment to not just fight to survive but more importantly to THRIVE!
    During this month, we will be sharing District Students, Staff, and Alumni voices of strength and resilience! We'd like to hear from you!  Do you want to share a story of your Detroit community, your school, or even yourself? We will share these testimonials throughout the month as a way to uplift our community as we start off 2022! 
    Please share your story, a short video, a poem, or a drawing that celebrates DETROIT STRONG by emailing

    “Community means strength that joins our strength to do the work that needs to be done. Arms to hold us when we falter. A circle of healing. A circle of friends. Someplace where we can be free.”  — Starhawk
