Building Bridges to "New" Ethnic Minorities: Adapting the Community Relations Agenda to New Demographic Trends

By Miriam Schey Imerman, David Gad-Harf

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1992

As previously solid white suburbs have become ethnically diverse, the public schools have become the focal point of intergroup tensions. The Jewish Community Council of Detroit joined with new ethnic coalition partners, as well as traditional partners in new geographic areas, to address this problem, using the ground rules for coalition building that have proved so successful in the past.
