Morningside Safe Routes

The Wayne State University Alumni Association and Wayne Cares joined the AmeriCorps Urban Safety program (AMUS) in partnership with Detroit Public Schools, the Detroit Police Department and the Morningside Community Organization to secure 10 dangerous, vacant structures surrounding the campus of Clark Preparatory Academy on Friday, Nov. 7. Nearly 80 volunteers completed two blocks of beautification to ensure safer pathways to and from school as part of the city-wide Safe Routes to School initiative.
