    Black History is Milwaukee History

    Black History is Milwaukee History

    Black History is Milwaukee history, it’s Wisconsin history, it’s United Way history. This month and all year long, we celebrate and reflect on the significant achievements of African American individuals and organizations in our local community. At United Way we are fortunate to partner with local nonprofits with a rich history of serving Milwaukee’s communities of color. These organizations and the incredible individuals who lead them honor their rich legacies every day by continuing to fight for what’s right: a just, equitable, and thriving community for everyone in it. These are their stories.

    From United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County, this is Living Local.

    On today’s podcast, Miles Sigh, a recent graduate of Marquette University and a Milwaukee Fellows intern at United Way, connected with Dr. Eve Hall, executive director of one of United Way’s most historic partners, Milwaukee Urban League, an organization that has been a staple in the Milwaukee community for more than a century.

    Then, United Way’s Katie Kuhn speaks to Gerry Howze, executive director of PEARLS for Teen Girls, which has been providing support, mentorship, and leadership skills training to local young women - particularly young women of color - in our local community since 1993.

    Reimagine Our World

    Reimagine Our World

    COVID19 has impacted all of our lives, but many members of our community were already struggling before the pandemic hit. Issues like housing instability, living paycheck to paycheck, and navigating serious health concerns were only amplified by COVID19. And the need keeps growing.

    The Faces of Change

    The Faces of Change

    Annually, United Way provides funding to hundreds of local programs that run the gamut from early childhood education to disabilities services to employment support to food security. In a normal year their work is astounding, and this year, when both need and uncertainty were higher than ever, our local nonprofit partners showed us all what it means to serve our community.
