Connecting Shorewood's Food, History, Public Art, Neighborhoods and Businesses. Jane Jacobs was an urbanist and activist whose writings championed a community-based approach to city building. Her 1961 treatise, The Death & Life of Great American Cities, introduced ground-breaking ideas about how cities function, evolve, and fail that have become commonsense. Shorewood's Business Improvement District and WIS Congress for New Urbanism are hosting a Jane's Walk on Wednesday, May 23. Jane's Walks are free neighborhood walking tours that celebrate and investigate the people and places that make a city great.
Space is limited to 25 and it's free. The walk starts at Three Lion's Pub at 6:30 p.m. and ends at Milwaukee Brat House at 7:30 p.m. - rain or shine. Register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

May 29, 2018, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM @ Kingo Lutheran Church
In August 1967 the Youth Council of the Milwaukee NAACP led the first of 200 nights of marches calling for fair housing throughout the city. In April 1968 following the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Milwaukee's Common Council passed an open housing ordinance that extended beyond the National Civil Rights Act signed into law just weeks before. This history, largely overlooked by historians, affects our city today.
Kingo Lutheran Church will host and facilitate a discussion surrounding the March on Milwaukee which occurred 50 years ago. The discussion will take place on Tuesday, May 29. Discussion materials were developed by students in Marquette University's Future Milwaukee community leadership program. Join us for an open discussion, learn about Milwaukee's history, and share your stories of social justice.
This event is FREE and open to the public. Seating is limited. Register at https://march-on-milwaukee.eventbrite.com or by calling 414.964.2620.
