Julie Sabit is a native of Detroit. She graduated from Southeastern High School in 1950 and received her BA in Sociology from Wayne State University in 1958. Sabit initially began work in the City of Detroit’s Planning Department as a student technical assistant in 1957. Upon her graduation in 1958, she began working as a Social Planning and Development Assistant within the Research Division of the Planning Department, eventually becoming the head of that division. In 1973, Sabit received her Master’s in Sociology from Wayne State University. She became involved with the Association of Municipal Professional Women (AMPW) when it was founded in 1975, and she served on its board from 1975 to 1985. In 1990, she retired from the City of Detroit’s Planning Department. During her retirement, Sabit received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Wayne State University.

The Julie Sabit Papers reflect Sabit’s work within both the City of Detroit Planning Department and the Association of Municipal Professional Women, much of which overlaps. Material includes directories, correspondence, memos, officer rosters, annual reports, policy objectives, organizational timelines, project and events materials, newsletters, and other various publications.
