When people are lacking in need and their cries for help dismissed because they are viewed as expendable by the political and economic structure, we have an obligation to respond rightfully to their challenges to ensure equality.
But in doing so there is need for a credible medium that would allow for rigorous research and debates about solutions regarding the moral crisis of poverty, which in my estimation, is the most important issue facing the recovery of Detroit.
No other issue trumps the carnage of poverty and how it has sentenced many people to a permanent state of deprivation including children. In Detroit, the numbers are glaringly clear about the extent to which inequality has become the everyday reality for most Detroiters.
The city cannot realistically come back in any way, shape or form without the requisite interventions to combat this maddening economic misery.
That is why The PuLSE Institute is an important and a bold addition to the ongoing debate about where Detroit ought to be now and in the future.
