PAST Events


Our 30th Anniversary Eastside Extravaganza returned to the Roostertail, Detroit's premier waterfront entertainment facility, and was an awesome evening of elegant dining, dancing, award-giving, and socializing with 500 of our east side Detroit neighbors. Funds raised from this event will support our community and commercial development, youth leadership, and mobility out of poverty programs.




The 2018 Eastside Summit focused on housing in our community. Housing challenges and opportunities are omnipresent on Detroit's eastside. Vacancy, foreclosure, increasing rents, unclear land contract terms and many more issues face tenants and homeowners and the community at large. 235 people attended our third annual summit, Housing Justice on Detroit's Eastside,  at Southeastern High School to learn from government, academic, and advocacy organization experts - - as well as from best practices among the myriad block clubs and coalitions in attendance -- how better to deal with such complex issues.
