Second Shift: From Crisis to Collaboration tells the compelling story of how the city of Lansing saved itself in the early 2000’s. When GM was prepared to leave Lansing, leaders of the community convinced them to invest billions instead. The documentary follows the successful regional collaboration that created a “second shift” for a community in crisis. It’s an inspirational story of communities coming together for the future of the city. The trailer for Second Shift: From Crisis to Collaboration can be viewed here: https://vimeo.com/106324479.
