According to a recent Public Policy Forum survey of Milwaukee-area Millennials, crime is the most commonly cited critical issue facing the city and the factor that Millennials like least about the City of Milwaukee. What can be done about that?

In response to the December 2015 survey, Safe & Sound and NEWaukee have teamed up to create a free panel discussion dubbed “Building a Safer Milwaukee: What You Don’t Hear on the 6 O’Clock News.” Moderated by Safe & Sound’s executive director Katie Sanders, panelists include Mayor Tom Barrett, police chief Edward A. Flynn, MMAC president Tim Sheehy and judge Derek Mosley.

The goal of the panel is to inform young professionals and address concerns through an in-depth discussion on law enforcement, livability, economic development, media, community action and problem solving.

The free event will be held at Discovery World (500 N. Harbor Dr.) on Tuesday, April 26th from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Registration is required. Coffee and a light breakfast will be provided.
