Milwaukee’s COVID-19 response has been a remarkable mobilization of resources and organizations to address needs for shelter, food, testing, internet connection, and more. Necessity has forced such collective efforts in many cities, but Milwaukee’s may be unique in the civic architecture that has been built and that may be sustained beyond the crisis.

In this virtual coffee chat, we hear from civic leaders who share what they have learned from collaborating during an unprecedented time in their community, and how collective efforts can support both emergency needs and systems changes.
