PPI 10th Anniversary Celebration

Community Advocates formed the Public Policy Institute in 2008 to address the root causes of poverty so that we could prevent clients from ever needing our services.

As our 10th anniversary approaches, we are looking forward to celebrating our successes with our supporters.  

To mark our first decade and kick off our second, on April 26, 2018, Community Advocates Public Policy Institute will host a special night at the Milwaukee Public Museum featuring keynote speaker Richard Rothstein, author of The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America, a finalist on the long list for the National Book Award for nonfiction in 2017.

To provide a local perspective on housing segregation in Milwaukee, the evening’s special guest will be Milwaukee historian Reggie Jackson, Head Griot of America’s Black Holocaust Museum.





Our sponsors will be able to meet Rothstein and Jackson in an intimate gathering from 6 to 7 p.m., before the program begins at 7 p.m..

All guests will enjoy private, after-hours access to Milwaukee Public Museum’s recently renovated Streets of Old Milwaukee, which provides an environment in which guests can reflect on the past in order to transform the future. Our mix and mingle will conclude at 9 p.m.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. Contact Public Policy Institute Deputy Director Kari Lerch at 414-270-2950 or klerch@communityadvocates.net for more information.

Individual tickets will go on sale soon. Watch this space for more information.
