Wayne State alumna and community activist urges Warriors to join the fight against COVID

"Community organizers have been going to bat for Detroiters long before the coronavirus (COVID-19) hit, but the pandemic has drastically impacted how they do business, said Kaitlin Popielarz ‘20, a recent Wayne State University alumna and community activist. 

As a community action researcher with We The People of Detroit, a grassroots organization that informs, educates and empowers Detroit residents, Popielarz has witnessed the toll shelter-at-home orders take on people without access to clean water. “Wash your hands,” government officials, billboards and ads say. But many can’t."
