Prominent Detroit protester shifts focus to starting nonprofit organization
DETROIT – A prominent protester in the city of Detroit has stopped lending her voice to protests and has instead shifted her focus to starting a nonprofit organization. For the first seven days of protests in Detroit, everyone involved got to know the voice of Gabrielle Wilson. But she’s no longer protesting because she thinks she can have more of an impact by creating a nonprofit organization for middle class Black families. “I am one of them.”Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan said Wilson got his attention during the protests. Local 4 has heard from other protesters who have stopped because more aggressive groups pushed them to the side, criticizing them for wanting peaceful protests.
