With the strength of Detroit's Eco Works legacy and a generation of BIPOC leaders at the ready, Bryan Lewis is ready to leverage this moment.
Bryan Lewis settled into the executive director position at Detroit’s EcoWorks environmental nonprofit in October 2020, taking the helm of a 40-year-old organization that has fought for environmental equity since day one. Now, he sees ways to leverage this moment of clean energy transition to create more just, equitable, and healthy lives for thousands of Michigan people.
His leadership comes at a crucial moment, as Detroit suffers dangerous flooding and heat waves driven by global warming and hitting low-income communities of southeast Michigan hardest. Bryan joins host Kate Madigan and guest host Jamie Simmons of Michigan Climate Action Network.
