Allied Media Projects (AMP) is a hub, home, and incubator for many of the visionary people and collectives in Detroit. The LOVE Building, located in Detroit’s Core City neighborhood, is home to Allied Media Projects, Detroit Justice Center, Detroit Disability Power, Detroit Narrative Agency, Detroit Community Technology Project, and Paradise Natural Foods. Joining together under one roof allows The LOVE Building to create a hub for collaborative social justice organizing and serve as a resource for the surrounding neighborhood. Though the individual missions vary, all of these organizations are rooted in the collective vision of cultivating liberation, joy, and justice for all Detroiters. The LOVE Building provides a community space that is deeply accessible and environmentally responsible. It nurtures and amplifies the art, organizing, and cultural work of Black, brown, indigenous, queer, trans, and disabled Detroiters. And it provides legal services, healthy and affordable food, media arts programming, and a community Internet hotspot to the surrounding neighborhood.
