Community Organizer, Toledoans for Safe Water

Markie is the Organizer of Toledoans for Safe Water, a nonprofit grassroots organization in the Toledo area “working to establish a Bill of Rights to protect Lake Erie and the communities that rely on its health and viability.” Starting out as a signature-collecting volunteer, Markie now runs the entire enterprise, from organizing community events and writing press releases to lobbying the city government to pass clean water legislation.
