The Michigan Department of Civil Rights is hosting the 2012 Michigan Leadership Collaborative Conference on Monday, Nov. 5, 2012, from 8:30am-4pm, at the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center in East Lansing. This event will focus on "A Place Called Home: Understanding the Impact of Fair Housing."

Mary Beth Graebert, MSU Land Policy Institute’s associate director of programs and operations, was invited to participate in a session on “Building Prosperous Places.” This session will focus on ways to engage all populations in building, rebuilding and sustaining strong communities. Specifically, Graebert will speak about LPI’s ongoing Rebuilding Prosperous Places study and how different population segments, such as the Creative Class and retirees, as well as ethnic minorities and low-income families, have different goals for placemaking. Julie Powers from the Mid-Michigan Environmental Action Council will join Graebert in the session. She will talk about the importance of engaging underserved and marginalized populations in the community planning process and the Mid-Michigan Program for Greater Sustainability’s Community Reinvestment Fund (funded by HUD’s Sustainable Communities Program).
