Executive Director Cozine with updates on our ABW Forward Campaign!
#ABW attended two awesome community events this past weekend!
We were at Ypsi Pride Vendor Fair Friday evening! Great performances by local artists, lots of vendors supporting the queer and trans community, and an amazing atmosphere. It was so great to get out into the community. #PRIDE
Then on Juneteenth (June 19), we were at Juneteenth Pop up Shop at Ypsi Freighthouse. The event was all Black owned local businesses and vendors. There was lots of amazing businesses to support. We loved the energy and always supporting Black work. This event was organized by The Myraid Collection and Break Bread Movement.

We were able to hire our first ever full time program coordinator. Her name is Grace Sekulidis (she/her) and she came to us from the University of Michigan. Sekulidis has her Master of Social Work with a focus on community organization and social systems. And is working towards her social work-macro full license. She is super excited to join the ABW team. She did her undergrad at Michigan State University (Go Green!), where she participated in the InsideOut program and attended a class in the Parnell Correctional facility. A fun fact about Sekulidis is she has been a vegetarian since she was 10 years old and enjoys fishing. Sekulidis will be focusing on all things programs and volunteers, as well as many other things along the way. Welcome Grace, we are super excited to have you!!!
