Come rally with Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib and other speakers ahead of the final vote for the Ilitch tax subsidies. Join us as we demand an end to corporate handouts for billionaires, while 19,000 Detroiters face property tax foreclosure.
In 2015, the Ilitch family received $400 million to develop Little Caesar's Arena and the surrounding District Detroit. After eight years of failed development, they are now requesting an additional $800 million in public subsidies from the Detroit City Council. This comes at a time when 19,000 Detroit properties are facing property tax foreclosures due to the property tax moratorium expiring in March.
The next day could potentially be the final vote. We need a strong presence to tell city council to reject this greedy corporate giveaway!
