The Social Development Commission (SDC) will host a series of six listening sessions to obtain input from low-income residents of Milwaukee County. One session will be held in each of the six districts represented by a community-elected commissioner seated on the SDC Board of Commissioners. Elected commissioners represent the needs of those residing within their district. The listening sessions will provide an opportunity for those living in poverty to voice their issues and concerns and express how SDC can help. Information extracted from the sessions will provide a foundation for the agency to determine future service and program offerings. Feedback will also be incorporated into SDC’s Summit on Poverty later this year.

DISTRICT 4 – Monday, February 22 – 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM HeartLove Place (3229 N. Martin Luther King Drive, Milwaukee)
