Conversations on Gentrification with Reggie Jackson and Zeidler Group
Historic Milwaukee is partnering with the Zeidler Group to host small group discussions tackling the issue of gentrification and the effect on Milwaukee’s communities. The program will kick off with a lecture with Reggie Jackson, Co-Founder of Nurturing Diversity Partners.
The lecture will be followed by small group discussions on gentrification. Participants are asked to participate in conversations that will be moderated by Zeidler group trained facilitators.
This program will be held virtually on Zoom. Capacity for this program is limited to 60 people – please only register if you plan to stay for the small group discussion. Attendees should have a camera and microphone on their computer or device to participate in the small group discussions.
The program is free, but RSVP is required.
