313Dlove returns for the fourth year, brings another inspirational event and celebratory march, hopes to garner positive worldwide attention for Detroit

Detroit, MICH, February 6, 2015–For the fourth year in a row, 313Dlove is celebrating all things Detroit with an event featuring Detroit’s most innovative and passionate minds.

The 313Dlove movement 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 on Twitter every year on March 13, the date that matches the city’s famous area code.

“313DLove has grown and evolved so much in the last three years. We keep outdoing ourselves,” said Terry Bean, 313Dlove Founder. “The speaker lineup this year is amazing—there is something for everyone.”

This year’s 313Dlove event will highlight individuals and their organizations which embody the 313Dlove values of  a Detroit whose self-worth is high, unemployment is low, and education is second to none.

“Every person who takes the stage at 313Dlove is representing the tremendous positive change that is happening within Detroit right now,” said Bean. “It is our job to share their stories and amplify their voices.”

Speakers that have been announced to date include Dr. Nandi of the Ask Dr. Nandi Show; New York Times bestselling author, David Farbman; Detroit filmmaker, Anthony Brogdon; Satori Shakoor of The Secret Society of Twisted Storytellers; and 12-year old Robby Eimers and his 9-year old sister Emma of The Eimers Foundation. As the event draws near, more speakers will be announced.

“I think people’s high interest in this event reflects their desire for change in Detroit and we hope those who attend will leave the event inspired to create change of their own,” said Bean.
