Safe & Healthy Streets Milwaukee and a coalition of transit organizers from across SE Wisconsin invite you to participate in a Zeidler Group community listening circle. Throughout the Spring and Summer of 2020, we had planned on hosting a series of transit themed community conversations across SE Wisconsin facilitated by the Zeidler Group. In response to Covid-19, we have moved this series online and invite you to take part via Zoom.
The community dialogue aims to bring together diverse stakeholders from across the Milwaukee region. We will discuss the future of our transportation systems and build understanding of the unique pressures faced across the region. More than ever your experiences are vital to the development of a transportation system that is responsive to the needs of families, workers, and businesses in Southeast Wisconsin. This is the first community dialogue in an on-going effort to strengthen forms of community engagement that bring us closer to the realization of safer and more accessible transit in the Milwaukee region. Every person’s daily commute should be safe and convenient. Our shared experiences have the power to build a safer & healthier transit system and re-establish a sense of dignity towards one another in getting places.
Regardless of your preferred mode of transportation, your experiences can help move SE Wisconsin forward. The dialogues are set up with the Zeidler Group’s listening circle model. All attendees will be briefed in a large virtual group and then broken off into smaller groups of 6-8 people. Each circle has its own facilitator from the Zeidler group leading the conversation. These small groups will be intentionally set-up to ensure the diversity of region and modality is represented in each conversation.
We hope you will join us. To register for this free event please visit, www.zeidlergroup.org/transit.
