Benjamin J. Ashmore, Sr.
As an undergraduate student, Ben's focus on family and civil rights was born, and he quickly became active in the American Civil Liberties Union (MI), and serving as a local board and state executive committee member while still a full-time student.
Following a stint in business running a real estate company he founded, Ben moved to a career in public policy and service. In Washington, he was an advocate for municipal finance with the National Association of Bond Lawyers working with Congress and regulatory agencies, before accepting an appointment to the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development in New York City.
