The vision of #313DLove is a Detroit whose self worth is high, unemployment is low and education system is second to none. 313Dlove began on March 13, 2012 with a tweet and the hashtag #313Dlove—a hashtag that went on to trend worldwide as people from around the globe shared their love for the City of Detroit. Since then #313Dlove has continued to trend every year on March 13, the date that matches the city’s famous area code.
313Dlove is a movement aimed toward bringing worldwide positive attention and focus to Detroit and its community. Since the first #313Dlove hashtag was tweeted in 2012, 313Dlove has consistently been an outlet for people to share their stories and love for the City of Detroit year-round online and during a once a year event every March 13th. The vision of #313Dlove is a Detroit whose self-worth is high, unemployment is low and education is second to none. 313Dlove was founded by Terry Bean, Founder of Motor City Connect.
We are busy making that vision a reality for many.
If TEDx is all about "Ideas worth spreading" #313DLove is all about "actions worth emulating". We've gathered a handful of top-shelf people who are busy making a huge impact on our community. They will share their stories, suggest ways others can "Be part of the change" and most importantly what drives them to stay here in the D.
The talks are from 1:00-5:00. We have built in plenty of time so we can get busy tweeting what we love about Detroit at 3:13 with the goal of breaking Twitter.
Plenty of other fun things to do:
Join the "March in March" in the morning at 10:00am.
Take tours of the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History
Hang out for our lovely afterglow in the beautiful rotunda
for drinks, art, music and fun!
(included in ticket price) 5:00- 6:30pm

There are so many wonderful things taking place in Detroit. We would love for you to join in the conversation by searching for and/or using #313DLove on your favorite social media site.
