Milwaukee Magazine Presents Unity Awards Event March 3

Event will feature a panel discussion with six individuals and organizations fostering diversity, equity and inclusion in Milwaukee. 

Milwaukee Magazine is proud to announce a community event and panel discussion featuring the six winners of the magazine’s second annual Unity Awards, presented by Kohl’s. The awards honor individuals and organizations who have invested their energy, talent and resources to make our city more equitable and inclusive for all. 

The Unity Awards Event is set for March 3, 2022, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Latino Arts Inc. @ United Community Center, 1028 S. Ninth St. Guests may enjoy complimentary food, drink and networking ahead of what’s sure to be a lively and inspiring panel discussion with the award winners: Katie Avila Loughmiller, Corry Joe Biddle, Jessica Boling, Courage MKE, Vedale Hill and Light the Hoan. You can read their compelling stories here. (Organizers are monitoring the COVID-19 situation; if the environment is safe for a live event, safety protocols will be in place.)

The winners were selected by a panel of Milwaukee Magazine staff and community members from a pool of individuals and organizations nominated by the general public. The nominees and winners are committed to bridging a host of divides in our community – racial, socioeconomic, sexual orientation, religious and others – and inspire us all with their efforts to bring equality and human dignity to Milwaukeeans.
