Nationwide 8-Cities and Expanding

Rebrand Cities has touched the communities of eight cities nationwide…Detroit, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, Newark, Los Angeles, Memphis, and Mesa (AZ). The dynamic stories that have grown out of these communities have redefined what it means to be an entrepreneur. Small businesses across America are speaking up, sharing their stories and showing their strength. This is a revolution, and we are striving to expand and grow in as many cities as possible, both at home and globally in 2019.

75 Students Built Their Own Wordpress.com Sites

On September 27, 2018, 75 high school students from local Detroit public schools attended the AT&T Believe Detroit Technology Challenge. Students learned how to build their own WordPress.com sites in support of one of two of AT&T campaigns, ‘It Can Wait’ (distracted driving) or Cyberbullying. The event cultivated an environment of possibility, with guest speakers Rhonda Walker and Evrod Cassimy from Local 4 News sharing stories of inspiration and encouragement, highlighting the vast opportunities that exist for these bright young minds. The challenge expanded Rebrand Cities’ reach to a younger audience, educating the youth about the digital divide, and encouraging them to get involved and make a meaningful impact in their communities. #BelieveDetroit
