PB&J Lunch Conversation with the Center for Urban Research, Teaching, and Outreach
November 11, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join our weekly Peacebuilding & Justice (PB&J) Lunch Series as we hear from Dr. Gabriel Velez, Assistant Professor in the College of Education at Marquette University. Dr. Velez is working with Marquette’s Center for Urban Research, Teaching, and Outreach to create a Black and Latino/a Ecosystem and Support (BLEST) Hub and their creation of an ecosystem map using KUMU software to visually represent the actors and partnerships that exist between the number of non-profits, government entities, for-profit organizations, grassroots organizations, and coalitions that exist in Milwaukee.
Their objective is to create a usable tool to understand the resources for Black and Latino/a students, and to highlight the nature of connections that unite the number of organizations in the city. They hope that this visual representation of quantitative and qualitative data we have been collecting will help us better understand MKE as an ecosystem and serve as a community resource once it is publicly disseminated. More here.
Bring a lunch and join us for this great conversation in Cunningham Hall, room 495! PB & J will be provided!
