“On the Issues” to examine Milwaukee’s foreclosure crisis
Milwaukee’s home foreclosure crisis will be the topic of an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha.”
MILWAUKEE – Milwaukee’s home foreclosure crisis will be the topic of an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Tuesday, Nov. 11, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.
The number of tax-foreclosed homes in Milwaukee’s central city stands at roughly 1,000. Many are vacant and vandalized. But nonprofit groups working in some of Milwaukee’s most challenged neighborhoods say there’s another story to be told, one of hope and opportunity. They say that progress is being made in addressing the foreclosure crisis in the city, and that hundreds of low-income residents are getting a once-in-a-lifetime chance to transition from renting to home ownership.
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.
