Karen Majewski

“On the community level, on the local level, you can make such an impact; your one voice can make such an impact."

This episode of Strength in the Midst of Change features Karen Majewski, 1991 CEW+ Towsley Scholar, and the first female mayor of Hamtramck, Michigan. Karen talks about her journey to Hamtramck and shares how diversity and immigration make the community so unique, connected, and special. Make sure to listen to the end to hear her advice for those who are interested in engaging civically in their own communities.

Resiliency is best demonstrated in times of challenges.
