Community leaders hope to inspire change by addressing racial injustice in Green Bay through a series of town hall discussions.

The Where We Live:Virtual Town Hall Event drew more people than expected reaching capacity before it even started. Mai Lo Lee is the director of Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs at UW-Green Bay. She thinks it’s time for leaders and others in northeast Wisconsin to embrace equity and inclusion. She thinks the best thing a white ally can do is advocate for a community that is underrepresented. The event was scheduled by the Greater Green Bay YWCA and the non-profit is planning more virtual events.
