At home he is working to help communities create coalitions to combat drug and alcohol abuse among teenagers. From this experience, Levin co-authored the federal Drug Free Communities Act which has funded over 300 of these programs nationwide. His work on the Anti-Crime bill has resulted in over 70 additional community police officers, a new multi-jurisdictional unit, and $17 million for a consortium of 44 police agencies in Oakland County to upgrade crime-fighting technology at local police departments. Levin is also working to strengthen education and is involved in numerous other local projects.

Born in Detroit, Levin graduated from Central High School. He earned his B.A. at the University of Chicago, his M.A. in international relations from Columbia University and a law degree from Harvard University. Sander Levin and his wife, Vicki have four children and seven grandchildren. His brother, Carl, serves in the United States Senate
