March 20, 2022 | 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Marcelia Nicholson, Chairwoman, Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors.
Milwaukee County became a national leader when it declared racism a public health crisis in 2019, an initiative championed by County Board Chairwoman Marcelia Nicholson. The following year the county launched a strategic plan to achieve racial equity and become the healthiest county in Wisconsin. Milwaukee County continues to face many challenges. It is managing a revenue crisis that has forced cuts of about $30 million from the budget each year, and is confronting a second health care crisis with COVID-19. Hear how Milwaukee County is facing these challenges with intentional leadership. Host: Bruce Wiggins

For over 50 years, the Sunday Forum lecture series has showcased provocative, sometimes controversial, speakers discussing topical issues of the day: politics, the environment, health issues, the arts, education, and more. The Sunday Forum is held at 10:00 a.m. September through May. Speakers give a 45-minute presentation, followed by questions and brief comments from the audience. The content of Forum lectures does not necessarily express the viewpoint of First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee, but are meant to offer thoughtful topics which our members often pursue further on their own.
