Panelists will discuss their continuous journey to betterment in the space of race and operating in solidarity with Black and Brown people

We at Radio Milwaukee recognize that our listenership is largely made up of white individuals and that it is our responsibility to educate our listeners. We also recognize that the burden of teaching white people about race and how to work to be better often falls on the shoulders of Black and Brown people, and we want to work to shoulder that burden. The education falls to white people. So we’re convening this conversation “Solidarity in Action” so that white people can do the work of talking and educating other community members about how to improve their work in solidarity with Black and Brown people.

During this global human rights movement, many of us find ourselves asking, “How can I help,” “How can I get involved,” “How can I advocate for communities that are not my own,” or “Where do I start?” On Tuesday, June 30th at noon, we’re hosting “Solidarity in Action,” featuring a panel of local leaders from different sectors talking about their continuous journey to betterment in the space of race, operating in solidarity with Black and Brown people, and how you can become active in your community.

Panelists include: Jonathan Brostoff, WI State Assembly, Stephanie Roades, SURJ MKE, Kirsten Helgeson, Just a Girl Inc., Dr. Stephanie Baran, Instructor of Sociology, and Kyle Pfister, Ninjas for Health

Moderated by Renee Scampini, PhD Candidate, UWM Urban Studies Program
