    Jessica Ayoub is the ACLU of Michigan’s Public Engagement Strategist. Jessica earned her MSW from the University of Michigan in December 2015. Her ability to marshal volunteer forces played a crucial role in the passage of Proposal 3, an ACLU-backed ballot measure that makes it significantly easier for Michiganders to vote. Prior to joining the ACLU-MI, she did a stint in AmeriCorps, working with Detroit school students. After that, she worked with Forgotten Harvest, helping provide quality food to low-income residents throughout metro Detroit. Through it all, one consistent thread has been a bedrock belief in helping community members develop the ability to take the lead on issues facing them.
