About this grant

Michigan United was formed to educate Michigan citizens on the value of equal opportunity, fairness, diversity and equal access. Funding will enable the organization to gather new and existing research on the best ways to frame issues of continuing discrimination; develop accurate and engaging messages to assist in local educational efforts; build broad-based, bipartisan local coalitions representing diverse constituencies that can support equity initiatives; recruit a speaker’s bureau; conduct Regional Community Educational Forums; and encourage communication among leaders.
