Join us at Washtenaw Republican Party HQ for a special presentation by a local pro-life activist, Kathy Dobrowolski, as she discusses the challenges of pro-life activism in Washtenaw County.
Kathy and Paul Dobrowolski are the Directors of a nonprofit organization, Life Solutions of Washtenaw County, as well as the Directors of Ann Arbor Sidewalk Advocates for Life, starting the local program back in 2014. SAFL trains, equips and supports sidewalk advocates who reach out to abortion-minded clients, at the Ann Arbor Planned Parenthood, year-round, to lovingly and lawfully offer them life affirming alternatives.
Before SAFL, they were the directors of Ann Arbor 40 DFL from 2007 to 2014. Kathy and Paul also serve as the Pro-Life couple for their Knights of Columbus council, where Paul is an active Knight. Kathy is the director of the Pro-Life ministry and Church Librarian, and both serve on the Disability Ministry committee, at St. Andrew parish in Saline. They have helped with fundraising and baby item drives for both local pregnancy centers for many years. Kathy and Paul are also currently serving on a committee to secure a mobile ultrasound unit to use at the Ann Arbor SAFL site. Paul also organizes Public Square Rosary Rallies as well as an annual Pro-Life Bridges Day in Ann Arbor. The Dobrowolskis were the recipients of the Hailey Elizabeth Shaw Pro Life Legacy Award in 2021 from ArborWoman because of their Pro-Life work in the community.
Kathy and Paul have been married for 37 years, and have 3 sons. They first met after moving to Michigan for jobs, Paul as a medicinal chemist from New York, and Kathy as a microbiologist from Wyoming. They have always been pro-life, but became even more so due to having two sons with special needs – one related to mental health issues, the other to a degenerative genetic syndrome. In their spare time, they enjoy gardening, reading, golfing, birdwatching and visiting National Parks.
