Policing in Milwaukee: Share Your Questions & Stories

Mar 15, 2018

As WUWM gears up for our latest Project Milwaukee series, we want to hear from you.

Airing March 26-30, Project Milwaukee: To Protect And Serve will examine the past, present and future of police-community relations in Milwaukee.

Because YOU are the community in police-community relations, it is important that we include your questions, your voices, your experiences.

So, here's how to participate:

1.) Help shape this series.

What questions do you have about policing in Milwaukee? WUWM reporters and producers will use the questions you submit below to help inform their reporting.

2.) Share your stories.

When it comes to your interactions with police, what has your been experience been? We want to hear the good and the bad.

Send us a recording of your own voice, using your smartphone. Record your story using the voice memo app, and email it to maternow@uwm.edu.

Need help? Check out this quick tutorial:

These recordings will be used on-air and online.

3.) Attend our community conversation.

Join WUWM Wednesday, March 28 at 7 pm for a community conversation at the Wisconsin Black Historical Society/Museum.

Moderated by Lake Effect’s Mitch Teich and WUWM News’ Ann-Elise Henzl, the event aims to bring the community together for a constructive, solutions-based conversation with panelists in the fields of law enforcement, activism, and research.

Panelists include the Milwaukee Police Department's Captain Raymond Banks; Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission Chair Steven M. DeVougas; Jamaal Smith, Racial Justice Community Engagement Manager for YWCA Southeast Wisconsin; and Dr. Stan Stojkovic, dean of UWM's Helen Bader School of Social Welfare.

The forum is free and open to the public; however, we request that you reserve a ticket.
