Amy Lovell, board president of local nonprofit REDgen, and Prof. Angela Schultz, assistant dean of public service at Marquette University Law School, have been named "Movers and Shakers” by MKE Lifestyle magazine. Lovell was recognized for her advocacy for the mental health and well-being of youth. “If you are well-resourced and dealing with mental health, it’s a long, hard journey,” Lovell said. “If you’re having trouble putting food on your table and paying your rent, mental health is really, really low on the list. We’re trying to elevate a lot of the great work that’s being done in the community, as well as to connect people to one another.” Schultz was highlighted for the strides she is making in civil legal justice, specifically for creating the civil legal aid simulation “game” Lost in Law. “I want every single graduate from Marquette — whether they’ve done pro bono work here or not — to walk away with some basic understanding about how there are millions of people who are struggling with poverty right here in the state of Wisconsin, and what we as lawyers can do for people who need our help,” Schultz said.
