Formed by ice, filled by ice, often covered by ice, the Great Lakes encapsulate human exploration, migration, development and where we?re headed. This film views North America's fresh water inland ocean through the prism of ice, from the crossroads of history, science and climate change. North America's five Great Lakes contain a staggering twenty percent of the fresh water on the planet. Film explores shared Canadian-American resource of geology, human movement, population growth, industrialization, cultural development, recreation and the impact people have on the very environment they cherish and depend upon.

Hosted by:Ecology Center

Your history of 'better than last year' compels me to plan to attend/participate/anticipate next year's GLBD Conference.

Very well organized!

Loved the tour of southwest Detroit. The discussions about race were very enlightening and inspiring.

The conference is great!

Marygrove - beautiful campus and dining room. Outstanding food -- remarkable! Thank You.

It exposes me to ideas, perspectives, practices, and solutions that I don't find anyplace else.

There was a high energy and sense of dedication by young people as well as "seasoned" activists.

I enjoyed the Off Grid in Detroit Learnshop and the time to be still and reflect and let session sink in. Peter Hammer was also EXCELLENT!

The inspiration and info I get helps me travel through the obstacles and share with others in my life. Thank you for all your hard work and great organizing and love.

Shapeshifting Detroit: Overcoming Drive-By Economics
Malik Kenyatta Yakini, Lottie Spady, and Sister Gloria Rivera

The citizens of Detroit are challenging the failed policies that have long favored corporate wealth over the well being of city residents. 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.

Important Refuse Collection Announcement from the City of Detroit - collections are for residents only, not businesses or large apartment buildings. (Click above image for announcement.)


The Detroit Incinerator, located near I-75 and I-94, has been a major odor nuisance to residents living in the area. In 2010 the incinerator was bought and renamed Detroit Renewable Energy in an effort to "green wash" the facility although it remains a toxic, polluting facility. Zero Waste Detroit (ZWD) a coalition supported by Great Lakes Bioneers Detroit advocates for the City of Detroit to move toward a waste recovery system and away from incineration. ZWD members work hard to hold Detroit Renewable Power accountable for their actions.

When residents in the neighborhood began to complain of odors coming from the incinerator shortly after it re-opened, ZWD engaged the community to report this information to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ). As a result, Detroit Renewable Power has received nine notices of odor violation and was tasked with making repairs to their facility to eliminate the extreme odor.

Take Action:

It is very important that residents living around the incinerator stay diligent in reporting any odors in their neighborhood.
. Report foul odors in Midtown: If you smell garbage in the air in Midtown, you may smell air pollution from the Incinerator at I-75 and I-94. Please report this to the MDEQ at 313-456-4712 or after hours call 800-292-4706.

Together we can make a difference!

Boggs Center has endorsed the SOA Watch Convergence at the Border, which is taking placeholder from October 7-10, 2016 at the border wall in Nogales, Sonora / Arizona. Mobilize your communities to take a stand for justice and against militarization. The convergence will include workshops and events on both sides of he US/Mexico border, as well as art, music, and resistance. To learn more about why SOA Watch is moving from the gates of Fort Benning to the border, read the article From the School of the Americas to the Border and watch the documentary The Empire's War on the Border.

Download and distribute the Border Convergence fliers, and post information and images on your social media networks (click here for sample tweets). Get your group or organization to endorse the convergence, and to spread the word.

History is made by movements - mass movements of people who organize themselves to struggle collectively for a better world. The SOA Watch movement is a nonviolent force to change oppressive U.S. policies as represented by institutions like the School of the Americas, and to resist militarization at home and abroad. It is made up of people from many backgrounds who work towards a positive and fundamentally different alternative to the racist system of violence and domination.

Celebrate America Recycles Day by giving the gift of a curbside cart!

Nov. 15 was the 18th annual America Recycles Day, billed by the nonprofit Keep America Beautiful as "the only nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States."

We welcome any effort to boost recycling in Michigan, where our dismal residential recycling rate lags behind every other Great Lakes state and is near the bottom of the list nationwide.

Gov. Rick Snyder announced a plan last year to double the residential rate from 15 percent to 30 percent within two years. A lot of untapped potential for reaching the governor's goal lies in Detroit, which last year ended its longtime distinction as the largest American city without curbside recycling. All single-family homes in the city now are eligible to participate in the curbside program, but the $25 fee for a recycling cart prevents many households from taking part.

That's why MEC and Zero Waste Detroit partners set up a system earlier this year that lets you donate $25 or more to help Detroit families recycle. MEC and ZWD work with the city and its waste-hauling contractors to purchase and distribute the carts to households that have indicated a desire to recycle and a need for assistance to pay the fee. Every penny you give goes directly toward the purchase of a recycling cart. Since the program launch in April, generous supporters have put curbside recycling within reach for nearly 80 Detroit households.

It's quick and easy to make a secure online donation. You can do so by clicking here.

Water shutoffs are a serious issue and this piece tells the story well.
This past summer, the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department announced that it would increase its shut-off campaign to 3000 shutoffs per week.
