As we continue to celebrate Women’s History Month, we wanted to recognize the vital role that women played in creating Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice. Without their efforts, passion and dedication, we might not be here today. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to: Donele Wilkins, Kathryn Savoie, Mary Hollens, Andrea Kidd-Taylor, Akua Budu-Watkins, Kari Moss, Alice Jennings, Kathryn Lynch-Underwood, Grace Lee Boggs, Mama Lila Cabbil, Elizabeth Toomer and Kathy Milberg. We owe them all a debt of gratitude!
One of our co-founders, the late Grace Lee Boggs, was recently profiled. It’s always great to see our DWEJ alumni recognized for their efforts. Grace is featured in this article on women who helped shape Detroit. https://detourdetroiter.com/5-women-who-shaped-detroit…/
