'The People's Campaign' offers a helping hand
In rural America of the 1800s, it was common for neighbors to pull together to help each other. Harvest time - barn-raisings - there was a sense of "you help me, I help you."

The People's Campaign is headed-up by Sharlonda Buckman who is the executive director of the Detroit Parent Network.
