"I chose to support DWEJ because clean water is a worldwide issue, but hits the hardest in underserved cities like Detroit.  My husband was born and raised in Detroit and I have in-laws all over Michigan.  I know my own area gets plenty of local support for a clean watershed, so I want to make sure that all the places I love get supported."
