In the aftermath of tragic shootings across the country, WXYZ-TV (Detroit) teamed up with Detroit community leaders on July 14 to present a special broadcast “Detroit 2020: Unify Detroit” to help address the issues facing the local community.
WXYZ Editorial and Public Affairs Director, Chuck Stokes, was joined by Detroit Police Chief James Craig, along with Rev. Charles Williams II, President, National Action Network of Michigan and Steve Spreitzer, President and CEO of the Michigan Roundtable, to discuss what is being done to heal the nation and the local community.
The special was broadcast live from WXYZ’s downtown Detroit studio at the Qube building. WXYZ anchor Stephen Clark contributed to the discussion through social media.
The special aired just prior to President Obama’s landmark town hall special “The President and The People: A National Conversation,” which addressed the tragic shootings across the county.
