Join community, university and city partners on Friday May 3, from 2-6 p.m. at the Milwaukee City Hall Rotunda, 200 E. Wells St. A student poster session will explore senior capstone and graduate student projects examining important issues facing Milwaukee. A pop-up exhibit and a panel discussion will gather community leaders, residents, university scholars, students and city officials to explore why community voices are important and how they should be heard.

Panelists include Lafayette Crump, Milwaukee commissioner of city development; Evan Goyke, Milwaukee city attorney; Supreme Moore Omokunde, state representative for Assembly District 17; Camille Mays, community leader; Sharaka Berry, community organizer; and Stephanie Harling, executive director of Havenwoods Neighborhood Partnership and BID 31.

The event is presented by the UWM Urban Studies Programs, Milwaukee County Historical Society and the BLC Field School.

This event is part of the “That Unfinished Work: Collecting Histories of Ordinary People” project and the “Climates of Inequality” national traveling exhibit from the Humanities Action Lab. The exhibit will be on display until May 31 at the Milwaukee County Historical Society, 910 N. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive.
