Upcoming Event

Community Input Sessions

Please join the Zero Youth Corrections (ZYC) Action Committee for an in-person Community Input Session. The goal of this forum is to gather community input on strategies to reduce youth incarceration and the impact of the criminal legal system on young people in Milwaukee, which will help inform our second round of funding for ZYC Grants.

This event is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Youth justice advocates, impacted individuals and families, community representatives, and others are invited to join the conversations around this critical issue facing the Milwaukee community.

Wednesday, June 7 @ 5:30 PM at Wisconsin Black Historical Society – Register here.

Thursday, June 8 @ 5:30 PM at America’s Black Holocaust Museum – Register here.

The Zero Youth Corrections (ZYC) Action Committee is made up of representatives from Milwaukee County’s Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) Children, Youth & Family Services, the Milwaukee Turners, and Public Welfare Foundation

Comments Are Welcome

Note: We moderate submissions in order to create a space for meaningful dialogue, a space where museum visitors – adults and youth –– can exchange informed, thoughtful, and relevant comments that add value to our exhibits.

Racial slurs, personal attacks, obscenity, profanity, and SHOUTING do not meet the above standard. Such comments are posted in the exhibit Hateful Speech. Commercial promotions, impersonations, and incoherent comments likewise fail to meet our goals, so will not be posted. Submissions longer than 120 words will be shortened.
