Anthony Baber (he/him)

Director of Communications & Culture

Detroit Action

Anthony is the Director of Communications and Culture at Detroit Action. He is a storyteller, a lover of cats, and a devoted culture worker. Having grown up in Michigan, Anthony developed a strong sense of community and realized the importance of uplifting those without a voice. After college, he moved to Seoul, South Korea, initially to teach English as a second language, then eventually hosting a music show for a local radio station. Since returning to Michigan in 2019, Anthony has turned his focus to organizing and empowering local Black & Brown communities with an emphasis on collaboration and the arts. His experiences, both at home and abroad, have informed his perspective as an organizer, centering deep relationship-building, equitable practices, and joy.
