ON THE ISSUES: Revitalizing Milwaukee Neighborhoods (Date Change)

Wednesday, October 17, 2018 - 12:30pm Lubar Center

Please note the date change for ON THE ISSUES:  Revitalizing Milwaukee Neighborhoods. Our guests include Melissa Goins, vice president J. Jeffers & Co., and president, Maures Development; JoAnne Sabir, co-owner The Juice Kitchen and co-owner, Freedom Endeavors; and Juli Kaufmann, president, Fix Development.

The new date is Wednesday, October 17 at a SPECIAL TIME—12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. If you cannot make the new date and time, please email Rita Aleman.

The event was scheduled for next Tuesday, September 27, from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. at the Lubar Center at the Marquette Law School. Due to a family medical issue, one of our presenters is unable to participate, and we are rescheduling the event. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We look forward to the conversation with entrepreneurs and real estate developers, Melissa Goins, JoAnne Sabir, and Juli Kaufman. They are making significant contributions as change agents in Milwaukee, investing in and revitalizing neighborhoods that have long been ignored and neglected. Goins and a co-developer recently completed the Garfield School and Griot apartments projects, which they hope will be a catalytic development in the city’s Bronzeville neighborhood. Sabir and Kaufmann have partnered on a project called Sherman Rising. They are redeveloping the former BMO Harris Bank building at 35th and Fond du Lac, which burned during the Sherman Park unrest in2016. Once completed, the building will become home to a dozen businesses. Each woman says her work is not only about the bottom line, but about the social impact of what she creates. Or, as Goins puts it, “leveraging bricks and mortar to bring pride and hope to people.”
