Let’s Detroit is a lot of things.
Let’s Detroit is a platform. The platform consists of a website, texting function, social media strategy and a whole bucket of other initiatives so we can implement change with our partners and users.
Let’s Detroit is a regional initiative. Southeast Michigan is full of silos and one goal is to improve regional unity, collaboration and equity to help people live their best lives here in Detroit and the region.
Most importantly, Let’s Detroit is a connector. We want to make it easier for people to connect to each other, networking, things to do and ways to make an impact across our community. There are amazing people, organizations and initiatives that already exist so we try to point people in the direction of those resources to make living in the region easier and more fulfilling. But it’s not us telling people what to do, it’s you sharing what you love. Our goal is to create a platform that allows people to connect to each other and help others find their fit across Detroit and the region.
THE DETROIT REGIONAL CHAMBER
Let’s Detroit is a strategy of the Detroit Regional Chamber, and a whole host of collaborators across the region, as part of its Detroit Drives Degrees initiative. Detroit Drives Degrees’ goal is to increase the region’s postsecondary attainment rate to 60 percent, and to reduce the equity gap by half, by 2030. The Chamber and partners launched Let’s Detroit to help achieve these goals and drive relationship-building, regional collaboration, social mobility and equity across Southeast Michigan.
Regional businesses are encouraged to get involved with Let’s Detroit and engage with the next generation of leaders. Partnership opportunities offer 12 months of engagement and exposure through the website, texting function, events and social media platforms. Contact Sarah Craft at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Our website and Text a Detroiter function was built by the incredible AMBR Detroit team. They’re brilliant, hard working, creative and mission-driven people who took the ideas of so many people and made Let’s Detroit a reality. If you need a developer, we know who to call.
