25th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Thank you for joining us for this year’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration! We were privileged to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and honor local community members and organizations dedicated to serving others.
This Virtual Event WAS presented by Advocate Aurora HEALTH and hosted by Potawatomi Hotel & Casino.
Our Youth Engaged event, sponsored by Kohl’s, provided an open forum where youth can explore their views on current topics of importance in our community and across the nation, centered around the documentary “Growing Up Milwaukee”.
After viewing the documentary, conversations afterwards centered on building healthy communities, especially concerning four social determinants of health: Health, Education, Equity/Racism, and Food Insecurity. The discussion was moderated and feature a panel made up of business and community leaders along with youth representatives.
