Crossing the Lines

Crossing the Lines is an exploration of what unites us and divides us as people and as a region. The goal of the project is to tell stories that show the diversity of people and perspectives that make up Metro Detroit by collaborating directly with residents of the cities and neighborhoods that we’re examining.

This community-first journalism aims to engage with listeners by finding them where they live and work, by talking to them about their concerns in their community and listening, really listening, to what they have to say.

In spring 2019, WDET told the stories of Canton residents as part of its “Crossing The Lines” series. In April -- May 2021, WDET returned to the township to see how it has been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic in a series called "Canton Battles COVID."
