About this grant

We The People of Detroit is an important environmental justice group working on water policy issues in Michigan and nationally. Previous support from the Mott Foundation has helped the grantee manage its rapid growth, undertake long-term planning and launch its youth water camp in Idlewild, Michigan, that encourages careers in water science and stewardship. With continued support, We The People of Detroit will strengthen its organizational capacity, continue a citizen science project on community-level water issues and grow its youth water camp.
