Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity Housing, Race & Equity Workshop

Tuesday, February 27, 2024


Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity’s Housing, Race and Equity Workshop is a two hour interactive discussion based opportunity to better understand how local history has impacted our housing patterns. By examining primary sources and data maps, we’ll seek to understand how segregated housing was a conscious institutional choice and the very real effect these decisions have had on the Milwaukee metro. After looking at recent housing trends, we’ll have the opportunity to make a commitment to affordable housing and learn a few ways to take informed action.

WORKSHOP AGENDA

ACTIVITY ONE: Explore the health of Milwaukee today using data maps that document various physical, mental, social, and economic indicators.

ACTIVITY TWO: Use a historical timeline chronicling both national and local events from 1896 to 1968 to understand the roots of Milwaukee’s segregated housing.

ACTIVITY THREE: Review some of the key federal legislation and the critical local socio-economic factors that affected housing in Milwaukee since 1968.

ACTIVITY FOUR: Highlights some of the important housing challenges facing Milwaukee today, along with the initiatives driving the current momentum towards more equitable housing, as well as what you can do to create positive change.

This workshop is co-sponsored by Milwaukee Habitat for HumanityShorewood Moving Forward, the Shorewood Public Library, the Shorewood School District, and the Village of Shorewood.
