Organizer Community Advocates Public Policy Institute

Organizer of Mental Health First Aid Adult

Community Advocates Public Policy Institute works toward preventing and reducing poverty while improving the quality of life for individuals and families in Milwaukee and throughout Wisconsin. Our varied programs and projects are united in their view that poverty is Milwaukee’s biggest problem. 

The Public Policy Institute targets poverty in a number of ways: we try to reduce it through nonpartisan changes to relevant public policies and laws; we try to prevent its effects through public health efforts; and we work to increase opportunity and wellness for low-income people by fostering factors related to success, resilience and well-being.
