I live about half a mile from where Detroit borders Dearborn, which is home to the largest Middle Eastern community in the United States. This sign is a way for the City of Detroit to combat Islamophobia by extending a welcome to Arabic speakers. Per a neighbor living in my apartment building, the English translation on the sign is “Welcome to Detroit. This image fits the theme by illustrating that reaching out to others in their own language is a way to break down barriers promote positive change by building community.
