EVO DETROIT, D2N’s new initiative in Detroit, stands for Empowerment, Vestment, and Ownership. EVO Detroit’s goal is to establish working relationships with Detroit neighborhoods by allowing them to identify their priorities and advocate for themselves. This process of empowerment encourages vestment and gives ownership of the project to the community. Consideration is given to those projects which benefit the community as a whole, with the goal of making the neighborhood more desirable for locals to continue to live there. With this in mind, D2N has chosen three projects to receive the initial EVO grants, Project No Stand Zone, Piety Hill Pocket Parks and WNUC 96.7.
