Industry Civic Engagement

Building on Detroit's proud history of civic action

CitizenDetroit's work focuses on awareness and access to our civic infrastructure, creating more engaged and educated communities with it's mission to "Inform. Engage. Act." EarlyWorks had the opportunity to work with the founding director in applying for and securing multiple, top level operational grants that allowed this organization — once a program through Wayne State University— to officially becomes it’s own 501c(3). 

Established in 2012, CitizenDetroit has entered a new, more robust chapter, and our team has collaborated alongside them to discover and clarify their voice, identity, and intent. In addition to providing strategy recommendations and counsel on organizational structure and implementation, EarlyWorks has dived deep into the wide-breadth of materials needed for their specialized engagement programming and marketing, developing unified branding and assets that enhance and build on work that began decades ago as part of grass-roots initiatives.
