Sharlen Moore, director of Urban Underground, a youth development and mentorship organization on Milwaukee’s north side, talks about the importance of listening to our neighbors, challenging ourselves, investing in and supporting each other in order to improve our communities.
Moore says, “If we are not having those meaningful dialogues, or having opportunities to have those conversations, then, when I see you, I don’t know you, I don’t feel comfortable with you, I don’t feel safe.”
