About the event
AALAM, The Hispanic Collaborative, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, and a network of civic leaders are helping strengthen the movement for racial equity and we want to get Milwaukee on the same page about how. We’ll only get there together, and we want to get there faster with a shared gameplan.
In 2021, fourteen leaders of color came together to learn and begin drafting plays. They developed a vision and a model for how to make it real. We have the starting blocks, but this is an effort we all need to build together. We need you to help us refine our vision and to grow a radically inclusive racial equity movement
Racial equity is the end-goal but it is also the approach. We demand a movement that is built by the leadership of those enduring racial oppression, capable of building new ways of being.
To hold racial equity as both the mission and the manner of achieving the mission requires that we address the ongoing harm perpetuated by racial inequity in the here-and-now, but do so in a manner that builds towards the necessary systems change we know is required to achieve racial equity. We propose that an anti-racist framework can structure this approach. By prioritizing on shifting policies, representation, and power towards racial equity, we can all work together to advance the mission regardless of our specific efforts.
The partners seek up to two (2) community connected consultants who demonstrate the following in order to advance our work together:
· Have existing trust-based relationships with key community leaders from diverse racial, ethnic, generational and economic backgrounds in the Milwaukee
· Experience convening and moderating diverse groups of people to work on common goals successfully
· A demonstrated commitment to racial equity and/or racial justice
· Preferred, not required: record of connecting documented neighborhood disparities to the overarching goals of the project and specifically racial equity
