Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs is inviting residents to submit nominations for the 2021 Dr. James G. White 6th District Difference Makers Awards. Nominees can be individuals or groups that work diligently to improve and strengthen the quality of life for themselves, their neighborhood and the City of Milwaukee.

“There are so many talented and dedicated people who help make the 6th District such an amazing place to live, work and visit. These awards are just one way in which we can acknowledge the hard work of those groups and individuals,” said Alderwoman Coggs.

The awards are named for the late Dr. James G. White, who lived in the 6th District and served as a county supervisor and the regional vice president of WestCare Wisconsin Harambee Community Center. He facilitated countless neighborhood projects and programs and always used his gifts, talents and knowledge to improve and empower his community.

Four awards will be presented to 6th District residents, one to a community organization and one to a block club, all of which will have contributed to making their neighborhood a better place. Alderwoman Coggs will announce the honorees at the 6th District Town Hall meeting on Thursday, January 20, 2022 at 5:30 p.m.

Nomination forms are available online at, or by calling the Alderwoman’s office at (414) 286-2994 to receive a hard copy of the form by mail. Nominations for the Difference Makers Awards will be accepted from now until the close of business on Friday, January 7, 2022.
