“I was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin ... we lead the nation in many of the most critical statistics in this country ... fourth highest rate of poverty... second highest segregation rate ... one of the highest incarceration rates amongst African Americans ... school dropout rate is off the charts. Factories have closed, and the economic plight of the city has gone down, growing up in Milwaukee always felt like this was a place of extreme despair...it’s a very difficult place.” – Muhibb Dyer
Daily Practice: We need a just transition to a peace economy. The uprising in Milwaukee is the outcome of Muhibb’s experience growing up there. What in your community is not just? Where can you offer safe space to organize for change? #FreedomSquare is happening at the same time as the uprising. Be inspired by both.
