Unnamed 5

Meet Andrea “Dre” Velasquez, our Member of the Month. Since joining ROC Michigan in May of 2015, Dre has successfully completed the 2016 Economic Justice Alliance of Michigan (EJAM) Fellowship. This nine month leadership development program is designed by ROC Michigan to implement and coordinate practicum experiences at ROC. Dre’s practicum spawned a communication plan to brand ROC-Michigan. Now, Dre has taken a leadership role as Communications Chair. In this role, Dre created and updates ROC Michigan’s social media channels. She has also streamlined content for ROC Michigan’s website.

Expanding her leadership role, Dre co-facilitated a Know Your Rights workshop, with plans for another in November. Dre’s steadfast commitment to ROC-Michigan has helped the organization grow its membership to where it is today. We are proud to nominate Dre Velasquez for her leadership and vision.
