Milwaukee, Wisc. September 16, 2019 — With the 2020 US presidential election almost a year away, NEWaukee and Bridge the City Podcast are collaborating to host a Political Open Mic on the topic of voting. The free, public event will take place on Tuesday, September 17th from 6:00-8:00pm at Third Space Brewing located at 1505 W St Paul Ave, Milwaukee, WI.
Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes will introduce the program. Featured speakers will include Angela Lang, Executive Director of Black Leaders Organizing for Communities (BLOC); Sachin Chheda, Director of Fair Elections Project; Sara Eskrich, Executive Director and Andy Nunemaker, Board Member of Democracy Found; and Amber Wichowsky, Ph.D., Director of Marquette Democracy Lab.
The non-partisan event will give residents, elected officials, nonprofit leaders, and the business community a platform to share solutions to the challenges our communities face around voting.
At the end of the event, there will be an open mic for audience members to share their own ideas.
“We want to foster respect and positivity between attendees and speakers,” explains Jeremy Fojut, Co-Founder and Chief Idea Officer of NEWaukee. “This event is all about productive solutions rather than ideological tribes.”
Drinks from Third Space Brewing will be available to purchase.
