Kenyetta Dotson is a community organizer, veteran, and woman of faith who encourages positive systemic change throughout the City of Flint, Genesee County, and beyond. She has over 30 years of community development experience, serving as an advocate for youth, families, and survivors of violence. These skills and qualities were developed in her pursuit of higher education which began at Mott Community College, reinforced at the University of Michigan – Flint, where she earned a Bachelor of Applied Science degree, and continuing with a Master’s in Social Work Degree from Michigan State University.  Kenyetta recently completed her Doctorate Degree from Ashland University. 


Julie Lopez is the Director of Crime Stoppers of Flint & Genesee County and the Regional Director for Crime Stoppers USA, covering Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. She became involved with Crime Stoppers after her father-in-law, Pablo Lopez, a U.S. Air Force Veteran and active community member, had been shot and killed while sleeping in his Flint home in July 2011. During this time, Julie and her family worked closely with law enforcement, the media, and Crime Stoppers in an effort to find Pablo’s killer. This experience showed her firsthand the trauma and tribulations that impact victims of crime and their families. Although Pablo’s murder remains unsolved, she is a believer in the Crime Stoppers program and is devoted to helping law enforcement and the families of unsolved crimes in their search for justice.
