In the past few weeks, much of the world has united to stand against the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The act of aggression towards a neighboring country, especially towards women and children, is disturbing and shocking. Design Core Detroit wants to express our concern for the people of Ukraine, anyone in Detroit, the UNESCO Creative Cities Network and beyond who may be directly or indirectly affected by these recent events.
Regrettably, Ukraine is not the only country experiencing war. Violent conflicts are taking place in many other countries. Moments of international turmoil highlight our interconnectedness. In times like these, let’s continue to lift each other up and find ways to support our local and global communities.
We are very proud to represent Detroit in the UNESCO Network, which includes people from 246 cities across the world. In times like these, let’s continue to lift each other up and find ways to support those who may be affected by international turmoil.
Detroit is committed to supporting one another and our global community.
UNESCO issued this statement on March 3 about Ukraine.
