The Peer Association July 31st Milwaukee Listening and Feedback Session

The Peer Association is hosting a listening session in Milwaukee on July 31st. They are hosting this event in hopes to receive feedback from Milwaukee communities in regards to their newest project, “Apprentice to Entrepreneur - Breaking glass ceilings”

Who should attend?

All and any directly impacted stakeholders, community members, organizations and policymakers vested in improving Wisconsin’s approaches to address the needs and enhance current efforts to break down marginalization, disenfranchisement, including racial and gender inequalities in our current Workforce and Economic Development projects, specifically for those directly impacted by the Criminal Justice System.

We simply cannot continue to jail mental illness and substance use disorders as the solution.
