Christopher speaks from a broad, international perspective. He led the Human Thread Campaign to raise awareness, direct action and build solidarity with garment workers, and he previously served in multicultural and low-income communities in the U.S. and Latin America. Everyone can make an impact with their money, and this is especially true for people over 60, who have significantly more wealth than younger generations.
Erick’s responsibilities include overseeing the Refresh Milwaukee sustainability plan and coordinating the city’s involvement with local, national and global partnerships on environmental sustainability. He serves as a leader on the Milwaukee City-County Task Force on Climate and Economic Equity, which has plans to dramatically reduce area carbon emissions and use a green economy to create jobs while addressing deeply entrenched racial inequities.
Adam directs the port’s multimodal, commercial and passenger operations, which generate over $100 million in local economic activity annually and face a growing challenge from climate change. He oversees implementation of the StewardSHIP initiative to promote sustainable policies and environmental stewardship in handling freight.
Misbah, an attorney, has an undergraduate degree in environmental toxicology and is based at UWM’s Center for Water Policy. His career has included a focus on environmental science and law within the larger context of promoting social justice.
