Dear Detroit Bioneers:

GLBD is pleased to share with you the fruit of one of our collaborative efforts during the past two years. The Detroit Environmental Agenda is the result of the work of 10 organizations. GLBD is one of these organizations. Please take time to access the agenda by following the message and links included below.

Also take time to check out the 2013 Voter Guide. Learn how the candidates in your district as well as mayoral candidates responded. I trust that you will find these two documents (DEA and Voter Guide) useful tools to support your work. The message below is jointly being disseminated by all 10 organizations this week.

Please feel free to share the DEA and Voter Guide with your colleagues and among your collaborators.

Grateful for your ongoing support,
Gloria Rivera
GLBD Coordinator

Leading change-makers Malik Kenyatta Yakini, Lottie Spady and Sister Gloria Rivera are seeding community resilience with one of the most robust urban agricultural movements in the U.S., while contradicting the manipulative media narratives that justify oppression.
