Other than our former police chief, what does Detroit have that we don’t have? A group of Cincinnati leaders traveled to Detroit to get ideas from the city determined to pull itself up and out of bankruptcy. Sean Rhiney, director of The Eigel Center for Community-Engaged Learning at Xavier University, was part of the expedition and wrote about it for Soapbox Cincinnati. Sean and Eric Avner, vice president and senior program manager of Community Development with The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation, who organized the trip, talk about what we can learn from Detroit.
