This blog is about environmental justice and sustainability in Detroit. We are: a lifelong Detroiter who has lived through it all, a born-in-the-suburbs, schooled-on-the-east-coast do-gooder, and a Milwaukee girl who can't just sit on her butt and watch things - she's got to get in the action. We come from different backgrounds, but share a deep love for the city and have common goals: for Detroit's resurgence as a vibrant, life-giving city full of opportunities for all.
