About

The Detroit Equity Action Lab (DEAL) — an innovative hub for community-driven research, programming and media — raises the profile of racial justice issues, connects community experts to build collective power and amplifies the voices of Detroiters.

  • Through its Racial Equity Fellowship, DEAL connects community experts fighting structural racism in Detroit.
  • Through collaborative research and analysis, DEAL builds a shared understanding of how structural racism functions in Detroit and how it can be dismantled using a racial equity lens.
  • Through media and communications strategy, DEAL transforms the narrative by centering racial equity in conversations around and coverage of communities of color.
