What kind of healing does Milwaukee need most right now? We asked Heal the Hood

Heal the Hood's 9th semi-annual block party was held last weekend at 9th and Ring.

After being forced to take a pause last year due to Covid-19, organizers say the street festival and resource fair was sorely missed. It brought nearly 50 vendors and organizations together in support.

"That's a great thing to circulate money back into the community in an immediate way," says Jessica Butler, operations manager for the Heal the Hood.

In addition to live music and food vendors, there were also numerous community organizations on site, offering resources for healthcare, childcare and education. I asked Butler what kind of healing the city needs most right now.

She explains in the audio story below.
