Remembering Delores Bennett

A community is place where people have a sense of fellowship and work together toward common goals. Communities aren’t formed accidentally or without purpose; they require reliable leaders who work diligently to connect people to each other under a shared vision. This is the hard and heartfelt work of community leaders.

On February 6th, Detroit lost a remarkable community leader – Delores Bennett. Delores was a steadfast champion for many generations of children. Through vigorous advocacy and action, she made streets safer; she connected neighbors; she gave children hope.

May we continue to draw inspiration from Delores’ accomplishments and be reminded of the powerful impact one person can have on the lives of many.
