Fulfilling the demand for statewide discussion on moving Michigan forward at this critical time, the Detroit Regional Chamber, in partnership with Detroit Public Television, is launching “MPC20 Conversations: Respond and Rebuild.” This free digital series offers national and local speakers and dialogue, inspired by the tenor of conversation traditionally held at the Mackinac Policy Conference, every Wednesday, and most Fridays at 11 a.m., from Aug. 19 through Nov. 13.
Headliners throughout the 13-week series include Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Mayor Mike Duggan, along with national speakers such as Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Eugene Robinson, former presidential candidate Andrew Yang, best-selling author Margaret Hoover, and political pundit Harold Ford Jr., who will also provide perspective.
Discussions will focus on Michigan’s COVID-19 response and economic recovery, the 2020 election, and racial justice and achieving equity.
