From July 30-31, 2019, the Democratic presidential candidates converged on Detroit, for their second primary debate. Detroit has been home to some of the worst environmental injustices in the U.S., while also being a historic hub for visionary, black liberation struggles and organized resistance. The CJA member groups East Michigan Environmental Action Council and the Michigan Environmental Justice Coalition, who have been leading voices for environmental, economic and racial justice, took to the streets as part of the Frontline Detroit Coalition. Following a spirited rally with speakers and musicians at Cass Park, about 2,000 activists marched downtown and brought the demands for Environmental Justice within earshot of the Democratic presidential debate at the historic Fox Theatre.
