"She [Betty Jean Grant] is presently focused upon the East Ferry-Moselle Street area. The neighborhood also shares 2 zip codes: 14211 and 14215, both of which have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 infection. Grant believes it necessary to focus deliberately upon improving the plight of East Ferry Street and its residents." ~ We Are Women Warriors press release
