Community Advocates Public Policy Institute's 10th Anniversary Celebration 

Help us celebrate our first decade! On April 26, Community Advocates Public Policy Institute will host a special night at the Milwaukee Public Museum featuring keynote speaker Richard Rothstein, author of the "The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America," a finalist on the long list for the National Book Award for nonfiction in 2017. To provide a local perspective on housing segregation in Milwaukee, the evening’s special guest will be Milwaukee historian Reggie Jackson, Head Griot of America’s Black Holocaust Museum.

The evening includes:

VIP Reception, 6 p.m.: Sponsors and individuals with VIP tickets will be able to meet Rothstein and Jackson in an intimate gathering at the Milwaukee Public Museum with light refreshments from 6 to 7 p.m., before the main program begins. Individual VIP tickets, which include admission to the VIP Reception, the Main Event, and the Mix & Mingle, are $210.

Main Event, 7 p.m.: All guests will attend Rothstein's and Jackson's presentations on the roots and legacy of local and national policies creating residential segregation. Individual tickets to the main event and Mix & Mingle are $55 each.

Mix & Mingle, 8 p.m.: All guests will enjoy private, after-hours access to Milwaukee Public Museum's recently renovated Streets of Old Milwaukee, which provides an environment in which guests can reflect on the past in order to transform the future. Our mix and mingle, with desserts and coffee, will conclude at 9 p.m. The Mix & Mingle is included with all ticket purchases.

Don't wait to RSVP! Our registration deadline is April 19.

Haven't read The Color of Law yet? Boswell Book Co. will be on hand to sell copies, which Rothstein has graciously agreed to sign that evening.

This is a one-of-a-kind event that is sure to entertain and enlighten. We look forward to sharing it with you.
