Milwaukee Stories is a nonprofit media organization dedicated to spreading fact and understanding, providing a voice for marginalized communities and highlighting humanity. We publish the story of a different Milwaukeean every week, produce a monthly interview podcast with community leaders and share short videos of people on the street.

These are the real stories of real people from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We’re telling the story of this city through the people who call it home. Everyone has a story — will we listen?

Please sign up for our weekly email to have these stories delivered straight to your inbox! If you find value in this work, we need your help — please consider becoming a member of milwaukeestories.org. We depend on you, our readers, and appreciate your support.
