Our speaker this week was Adam Carr, who is the deputy editor for community engagement at Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service. Adam is a lifelong Milwaukeean, and co-chaired on March On Milwaukee 50th, which commemorated Milwaukee's Open Housing Marches. 
Adam shared the Milwaukee story through photographs. He also gives tours of Milwaukee, where he brings his tour guests on a ride through Milwaukee where he tries to bring them into contact with the community and community leaders.
Adam is a graduate of the program Future Milwaukee, which is a leadership development program in Milwaukee, and brought him into a contact with leaders of Milwaukee. Several Rotarians are currently working to develop an Ozaukee County Leadership program, which mirrors the objectives of Future Milwaukee. If you're interested in being involved, please reach out to Jenne Hohn, Maureen O'Leary, or Sam Azinger. 
Finally Adam presented on the history of the Milwaukee Open Housing Marches in the late 1960s, which were an important aspect of the Civil Rights movement of Milwaukee which drove the elimination of racial redlining and restrictive real estate covenants.
