Chelsea (she/her) believes having information allows people to have more choices in their daily lives. She enjoys Detroit’s public parks where she can walk, enjoy spending time with friends and family, or just sit and relax.
Membership and Operations Coordinator
Ashley (she/her) believes that local journalism is the most powerful tool democracies possess and hopes to see it used as a tool to fight injustice. Her favorite places in Detroit are those with family ties — the Maltese American club for a Kinnie and LCA during a Red Wings game.
Candice (she/her) believes that good information systems and organizations (like newsrooms and libraries) help communities and residents not just survive but thrive.
