What does it mean to be an engaged citizen in Detroit?

Active and responsible citizens are an essential part of a healthy democracy and play an important role in the welfare of our community. Active citizens can identify and analyze public problems; deliberate with other people about ways to define and address issues; take constructive action together; reflect on their actions, create and sustain groups; and influence institutions big and small. Use the Citizen Manual as a resource for taking action and addressing issues in your community.

Democracy transformed from thick paper to thick action is the greatest form of government on earth.

- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
