United Community Center executive director Diaz goes ‘On the Issues’ at Marquette Law School
Diaz is a passionate advocate for the city’s Latino population, which he says holds the key to the city’s future.
MILWAUKEE — Ricardo Diaz, executive director of the United Community Center, will be the featured guest in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Thursday, Nov. 9, at 12:15 p.m. in the Lubar Center at Marquette University Law School’s Eckstein Hall.
The UCC is a social service agency on Milwaukee’s South Side that plays a vital role in the city’s growing Latino community. It provides a wide range of programs for families, from educating children to caring for the elderly. Diaz has been at the helm of the UCC on two different occasions. He ran the center from 1984 to 1988 and returned in 2003 for his second stint as executive director.
Gousha, an award-winning broadcast 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, Gousha’s “On the Issues” conversations with 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.
Seating for members of the general public is at capacity; registration for a waiting list is available online.
