The 13th Annual Urban Studies’ State of Milwaukee Summit will be held on Thursday, Nov. 17, from 7-8:30 pm in the UWM Golda Meir Library Conference Center (2311 East Hartford Avenue, Milwaukee, WI 53211 – Fourth floor via elevator in the Library’s West Wing)
One of the Covid-19 pandemic’s many impacts on society has been to shine a light on longstanding racial disparities and other social inequalities and make them impossible to ignore. How has the pandemic deepened our understanding of racial inequality in Milwaukee? How should we act on this information? Our distinguished panel of political and civic leaders will offer their thoughts on these and other important questions.
