If you coming to Detroit, get amped.
Joe just came back from a road trip to New Orleans so he has got a little experience road tripping, and Bridget is working on some sick playlists. This is going to be awesome.
Volunteer thing we’ll be doing:
-Going to Lansing to do some lobbying
-Hanging out with some LGBT youth
-Maybe some baking at a lesbian owned bakery?
Aw Yeah. Comment with some of your favorite songs and road snack foods.
Awww Yeah Detroit. Registration is coming up January 30th, Mark it on your calendar.
For our trip we just checked our living situation, and it sounds baller, we have showers and a kitchen and tons of space!
Curious about the March weather in Detroit? It’s about the same as Boston, average is like 35 degrees for the month, and it tends to be cloudy.
We finally confirmed housing for the trip! Yeah!
This year we will be working with Ruth Ellis and Equality Michigan and we will be doing some LGBTQ community outreach and education when we get there. We also have some sweet spots to stop at for our road trip. Get jazzed, this is the best ASB trip. Ever. And forever in the future. Come in to the CSC Mondays from 1:30-2:30 and ask us about it.
Hello! I’m Bridget Darby one of the co-coordinators for the ASB Detwa trip. I am a sophomore in CAS studying biology and math and hail from distant land of western Massachusetts.
And I’m Joe Difazio, CAS Junior studying Poli Sci and Photojournalism. I’m from a suburb right outside Boston.
I like Ray Allen, Why?, Back to The Future, ASB DETROIT, House, Milkshakes, and photos.
I dislike the Lakers, and hot weather.
If you’re not coming with us you will be so sad.
We’re packing up the van and driving to Michigan! ASB Detroit’s mission is to volunteer with the Ruth Ellis Foundation and Equality Michigan to help out the LGBTQ community in Detroit. We will be staying in beautiful Highland Park, a city within the city of Detroit where Grand Torino and parts of 8 Mile were filmed.
