Dear Friends of the Boggs Center,

We’d like you to know that

  • One of the main reasons why 15-20,000 people are coming here June 22-26 for the 2nd USSF proclaiming that ANOTHER WORLD is POSSIBLE, ANOTHER US is NECESSARY, ANOTHER DETROIT is HAPPENING is the work that the Boggs Center and so many others have been doing for years, combining theory with practice, patience with urgency, to rebuild, redefine and respirit our city as a harbinger of the next American {r} evolution.
  • We’ve expanded the meeting room upstairs to accommodate meetings of 50-60 people because the pace of events and the intensity of the struggle have been increasing in the last year.
  • Field and Goethe, the corner where the Boggs Center is located, is becoming a historic site. Alice Jennings has applied for historic designation for 3061 Field. A close supporter wants to buy one of the adjacent vacant houses.
  • Boggs Center, Detroit Summer, Detroit City of Hope (DCOH), Detroiters for Dignity and Democracy (DDD) folks will be Ambassadors at the USSF, handing out our broadsheet mapping and describing what is going on at the USSF and in Detroit. If you would like a copy, please let us know.
  • At the USSF we are celebrating Grace’s 95th Birthday.
  • After the USSF we’ll be meeting in the fall to discuss, decide on expanding the depth and breadth of our work, including networking with groups in other cities, etc.
  • For all this we need your support, in the form both of ideas and money. It is already obvious that we will need an organizer. Can we count on your contributions to make that possible? Would you like to attend the fall meeting? Please let us know.
  • The next ten years are pivotal for everyone who cares about the future of our planet and for all forms of life, including the life of our posterity.

The only reward for good work is more work. We have come thus far with your support.. Please continue to be part and parcel of the Boggs Center to Nurture Community Leadership for the next American {r} evolution. With your support and encouragement we are making history.

Please continue reading and sharing our updates. Please also make a contribution to the Boggs Center by clicking donate on or sending a check to Boggs Center: 3061 Field Street, Detroit, Mi 48214.

If you attend the AMC or USSF, we look forward to seeing you in Detroit. If not, we hope to hear from you or see you in the fall. Keep in touch.

—Board Members: Grace Lee Boggs, Rich Feldman, Shea Howell, Scott Karashige, Shari Saunders, Ron Scott, Kim Sherobi, Kerry Vachta, Stephen Ward, Mike Wimberley

    I wanted to go see Grace Lee Boggs speak, but I can’t afford to take off work. I’ve been watching USSF online, FSTV is streaming it live. Right now they are showing the Poverty Summit.
