Craig speaks with Crain’s Detroit Business reporter Dan Duggan about a new multiyear initiative, "Detroit Homecoming," that's inviting ex-Detroiters to re-engage with the city.

The program is offering new opportunities for Detroit “expats” to get to know the city again, and a Host Committee including Author Mitch Albom, GM CEO Mary Barra, Detroit Regional Chamber CEO Sandy Baruah, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and Quicken Loans’ own Dan Gilbert will make sure that participants will truly see what Detroit is all about. The two-day event is set to take place Sept. 17-19, and is invite only. However, Duggan says that Crain’s (one of the partners involved in the program), is trying to “connect with as many people as possible.”
