Project Milwaukee


Project Milwaukee is a series from WUWM offering in-depth reporting and extensive coverage on issues vital to southeastern Wisconsin. The latest series, Segregation Matters, was created in 2017 and focuses on segregation’s enduring presence in Milwaukee, its impact and possible solutions. The topic of segregation was decided on after receiving numerous questions from listeners about segregation and its effects, and almost 30 pieces explored the topic during the series. In March 2017, WUWM hosted a live forum to discuss how this complex problem came about and why it endures, how does it contribute to persistent poverty, and if there are ways to break through the boundaries.
