Survey: Race Relations
Due to its importance in moving this region ahead, we are going to run the Race Relations Survey for one more week in order to get the broadest input we can.
While data from the 2000 Census identified Metropolitan Detroit as one of the most racially segregated regions in the country, in terms of White-Black residential patterns, we who live here recognize our increasing diversity. This is a region where over 140 languages and dialects are spoken. We have the largest concentration of persons from the Middle East. We have thriving and growing populations of Latinos, Asians and Chaldeans. Nevertheless, we remain a region of single-race neighborhoods, places of worship and workplaces.
If we are truly to make progress in this region we must recognize and value all persons – be they Native American, Asian, Latino, African-American, Arab, Chaldean or any of the more than 100 racial and ethnic groups that comprise metropolitan Detroit.
As a teaser, we wanted to report out a couple of early results. These are below. Please click on the link below to participate in the survey. Your answers will be confidential and no individual responses will be released to anyone.

Thank you for your time and interest. We all want to make metropolitan Detroit a place where everyone can thrive.
