Kinnickinnic River Neighbors in Action (KKRNIA)

Making voices heard

Form part of the change you want to see in your community.

Work together with the Kinnickinnic River Neighbors in Action (KKRNIA) and your neighbors to tackle and advocate for projects that will improve the quality of life in your neighborhood.

The KK River Neighbors in Action (KKRNIA) is a grassroots community group that the Department helped jump start to update and encourage resident participation in the many large-scale environmental projects taking place in their neighborhood. KKRNIA supports the Department’s efforts to build a healthier and more sustainable community by helping people get to know one another, feel safe and invest in their community. Through the KKRNIA’s outreach and encouragement, neighbors are working together to tackle and advocate for projects that will improve the quality of life and transform the built and natural environment within the KK River neighborhood.  These include street improvements, selecting and assisting in the design and installation of public art within Pulaski Park, coordinating neighborhood and river clean-ups, hosting annual picnics and other special events, and advocating for safer streets and expanded recreational, economic, and housing opportunities.

Health Equity Summit:
Empower a Healthier Milwaukee

 

Canceled

We’ve made the difficult decision to cancel our rescheduled 2020 Health Equity Summit; Empower a Healthier Milwaukee due to COVID-19 related precautions and restrictions around large gatherings. We appreciate your interest and are disappointed that it will not take place as planned.
We will be holding a Health Equity Summit in the spring of 2021 that will include the previously planned conversation on empowerment along with other dynamic topics under the broader umbrella of health equity innovation. Although we plan to hold the 2021 Summit in person, we acknowledge the significant uncertainties we face and are prepared to adapt quickly if needed.
