Critical Conversation Starter: Milwaukee Civic Response Economic Recovery Team

Date(s) - Wednesday, December 16th
7:00 pm CST - 8:00 pm CST


dsc0801-version-2In response to the pandemic crisis Milwaukee’s Civic Response Team – a structured, multi-pronged collaboration between the Mayor’s Office and leaders of local philanthropic and non-profit organizations – was established. In looking at the current and long-term repercussions, an Economic Recovery Team was developed.

With the knowledge that the pandemic has disproportionately impacted populations already struggling with access to fundamental needs, the Economic Recovery Team will address urgent issues of education and technology accessibility, early education, mental health, physical health, food, housing and transportation. The focus will be on the recovery as it specifically affects black and brown households toward ensuring that the recovery happens in a more equitable way.

Join us for a panel discussion including the following participants:
– Nancy Hernandez, President, Hispanic Collaborative
– Kristi Luzar, Executive Director, Urban Economic Development Association of Wisconsin
– Deneine Powell, President and CEO, African American Leadership Alliance of Milwaukee
