Public Policy Forum, Marquette Law School partner to launch new website focused on Milwaukee’s entertainment and cultural needs
Site to be unveiled during June 4 “On the Issues” presentation
MILWAUKEE – Public Policy Forum President Rob Henken and Marquette Law School Associate Dean Matt Parlow will launch a new website focusing on Milwaukee’s cultural and entertainment needs during an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Thursday, June 4, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.
The topic is of broad public importance. In particular, should additional public money be used to fund quality-of-life amenities such as the Milwaukee Symphony, county parks and the Milwaukee County Zoo? If so, how much money is needed, and where does it come from? Henken and Parlow will unveil the site, which is designed to enhance citizen input in the current conversation about key community assets.
The website, a joint project of the Law School and Public Policy Forum, gives users the opportunity to prioritize for themselves the region’s cultural and entertainment needs and determine how any improvements should be financed — then share their proposal on social media.
Seating is limited; registration is available online. For those who can’t attend in person, a “watch now” button on the registration page will provide access to a live video stream.
Gousha, an award-winning television journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.
Through the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, public lectures by leading scholars and topical conferences — all open to the community — the Law School serves as a venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
