In August, Voices for Earth Justice bid farewell to Theresa Beckley-Amaya, our intern in University of Michigan’s Detroit Community Based Research Program (DCBRP). Theresa was an absolute joy to work with; and her research allowed us to network with other private, non-profit, and community organizations that have missions and community engagement similar to ours. We also gained ideas for how to better engage youth as well as how to organize our garden. Pictured above is Naim Edwards, Voices for Earth Justice’s Program Director, with Theresa (center) and our DCBRP intern from last summer L’Oreal Hawkes-Williams at the August 5th DCBRP Exhibition. At the exhibition, Theresa presented a spoken word piece with Naim recounting her experiences in Detroit this summer.
