Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and CEO's around the city of Detroit met Wednesday morning to take a stand against justice.

Members of the automotive industry were at the meeting, discussing their plans to fight against racial injustice.

General Motors CEO Mary T. Barra said the company wants to be part of "meaningful, deliberate change." She said she wants to focus on inclusion for the company.

"We know we're not perfect, pretending to be is part of the problem," Barra said.

Ford said Ford Motor Company is committed to engaging with community members to take a stand against racism and injustice.

Several other CEO's took the floor to discuss their plans, condemn racist behaviors, saying "no more can be tolerated."
