Common Ground leaders go “On the Issues” at Marquette Law
Common Ground has been working on a range of issues in the Milwaukee area for years, but its profile rose considerably during the debate over a new downtown arena.
MILWAUKEE — Common Ground Lead Organizer Keisha Krumm and Strategy Team Member Jennifer O’Hear will be the featured guests in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Wednesday, Jan. 27, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. at Marquette University Law School’s Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.
Common Ground has been working on a range of issues in the Milwaukee area for years, but its profile rose considerably during the debate over a new downtown arena. The organization, whose supporters include dozens of area churches, challenged the plan to use public money for the new facility, and ultimately opposed the arena deal because the city didn’t include $80 million to improve playgrounds and school athletic facilities. Now the organization says it plans to be active in Milwaukee’s spring elections.
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 public programming such as the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, the “On the Issues” interviews of newsmakers, public lectures by leading scholars and conferences on significant issues of public importance, the Law School serves as the region’s leading venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.
The event is open to the public and registration is available online.
