Our Work

Communities in Detroit are doing remarkable work to build a vibrant 21st century future after a 20th century in which the city boomed an busted at an extraordinary scale. Detroiters have seen it all — the Arsensal of Democracy, Arson City, Devil’s Night, Angel’s Night, schools that have produced Nobel Laureates and dropouts, and neighborhoods that are, at once, food deserts and the vanguard of urban agriculture. Repair the World has an amazing network of partner organizations and volunteers that come from throughout the city, region and beyond to invest their energy in Detroit.

                  Since graduating from Oberlin College in January 2016, Aaron has been serving as the Resource and Outreach Coordinator and Accountant for Auntie Na's House - a grassroots community center on the West Side of Detroit. Aaron joined the Repair the World fellowship because he believes that direct service increases proximity to issues of oppression and inequality, which prompts resource sharing and capacity building to fight for justice. Last fall, Aaron sang karaoke in the city of Oberlin nearly every week of the semester.

She is excited to be in a similarly “hands-on” environment as a Repair the World fellow this year. As a student at University of Michigan, she studied both Jewish Studies and International Studies. And, she’s a music buff - she’s seen Bruce Springsteen 23 times (and counting)!
