A Welcoming Community in Southwest Detroit
Grace in Action Collectives is a network of youth-run collectives and worker-owned cooperatives in Southwest Detroit. Our mission is to create a welcoming community that animates residents, both youth and adults, as leaders in Southwest Detroit through education and cooperative economic development.
We currently house two youth-run collectives, Radical Productions web development and graphic design collective and Stitching up Detroit design and screen print collective. We also serve as an incubator for worker-owned cooperatives. Cleaning in Action is a co-op made up of several women in Southwest Detroit who specialize in cleaning offices and houses.
Through support from the Community Foundation and in partnership with Detroit Future Schools we are working on putting together a curriculum in graphic design, critical consciousness and leadership development. The process emerging out of the curriculum development will strengthen the base of training and social awareness of young people entering Radical Productions and Stitching up Detroit.
