Focus: HOPE Walk for Justice

Detroit's leading human service agency, Focus: Hope grew from the ashes of the 1967 race riots. The eight-mile Walk for Justice, now in its 31st year, celebrates diversity and promotes the agency's mission of building race relations. Last year it drew move than 20,000 spectators and 4,000 participants.
