Greater Milwaukee Committee Statement – May 31, 2020

 

The tragic and unjust death of George Floyd, which prompted protests throughout the country in cities large and small, including in our own city, illuminates the persistent inequities faced by all communities of color.

 

The Greater Milwaukee Committee stands with our community leaders and partners in recognition of the serious changes which need to happen in our city, region, and country. Racism and systemic inequities in access to healthcare, education, and justice are unacceptable. Working together we must find a way to create change, while standing against violence and property destruction. We have worked alongside many others committed to building our city and wish for the safety and security of all.

 

Our mission is to help make Milwaukee the best place to live, learn, work, play, and stay for all. In these unprecedented times of uncertainty and struggle, we are investing in our neighborhoods which includes working with MKE United to promote equitable neighborhood strategies, providing resources to small business owners through Scale Up Milwaukee, talent development and retention through The Commons, and the MKE Responds initiative to align resources and respond to community needs of COVID-19.

 

The Greater Milwaukee Committee is committed to listening to the voices of our community, hearing the concerns raised in protest, and leveraging our work to be a part of systemic transformation.

Sincerely,

David Lubar
