"I became interested in the works of Soulardarity as first an energy consumer and when the opportunity arose to speak on behalf of the people I couldn't let the moment pass by to contribute to the unification for energy democracy. I am a full-time activist, mother, life-long learner, experienced facilitator, writer, entrepreneur and SCAO (State Court Admin Office) certified Mediator. You can be assured of excellent work, dedication and passion. I look forward to getting to know each of you better and capitalizing on our unique strengths to ignite the community and push this movement further."

Margo Dalal is Soulardarity's Member Dues Coordinator.
"My name is Margo. I grew up in Virginia and currently live and work in Detroit. During my undergrad I concentrated on architecture, urban development, and cooperative economics. Now I focus my time working to prevent foreclosure, to support young Detroiters on personal and career development, on financial justice, and community development. When I am not traveling or camping, I love to cook, garden, and read in my house in Southwest. I am excited to work with Soulardarity as a community organization and because it means being part of an alternative towards energy democracy. Check out some of my work at Detroit Food Academy and Tricycle Collective, and stay tuned for the 2017 Detroit Kite Festival!"
