what we do...
The Detroit/Downriver Chapter has established a close relationship with those in our communities. We feed, clothe and educate those in our neighborhoods; because we are well aware if an individuals basic needs are not met, how can they even think about engaging in their community. Through our Detroit/Downriver APRI Youth Chapter we educate, guide and nurture future community leaders. Our chapter’s GOTV initiatives enhances community involvement by mobilizing, motivating and educating our citizens on issues which affect them politically, socially, economically and historically.
"Salvation for a race, nation or class must come from within."

Donations are always needed and appreciated...
Donations go towards our many community endeavors. Our Project R.O.C.K (Rebuilding Our Communities Kick-Off) Program is a program where we feed and clothe the community. Project R.O.C.K also assists children out of Foster care going into adulthood, ex-felons, domestic violence victims etc. with employment interview skills, attire and grooming needs for a job interview.
Funds are also utilized for GOTV, literature, gas, and refreshments for community education and development.
