Check this out as well re: Milwaukee Segregation, written by Dominique: https://urbanmilwaukee.com/2020/08/23/op-ed-why-milwaukee-is-so-segregated/

"Every culture begins as a counterculture"--appreciate that view point, thank you!
Lauren Feaster
57:36
^yes!
Paula Penebaker

As a transplant, I have experienced the hesitancy of native Milwaukeeans to accept outsiders. From my perspective that hesitancy manifests differently across racial/ethnic lines, but it seems to be a common characteristic.
Claire Becker (she/her)
01:01:29
Such a good question, Lauren! Really curious
Pam Klein
01:01:50
I am a transplant to MKE as well. I have lived here a long time now but I still find it that it can be difficult to connect with the "natives to Milwaukee" -- even as a white person.
Lauren Feaster
01:01:51
Agree, Paula
Lauren Feaster
01:02:03
Thanks, CB!
Betsy Johnson
01:02:51
I'm a Milwaukeean and am saddened to hear it's difficult with transplants to connect with others.
Tricia Geraghty (she/her)
01:02:53
I really like that concept--that online works great for pursuing interests in community, but that in-person community, including at work, has a different purpose for individual/communal well-being. Always learn something from you, Dominique.
Dominique Samari
01:03:25
Thank you, Tricia. :)
Betsy Johnson
01:05:10
I miss the hallway chats.
Paula Phillips (she/siya)
01:05:34
Your comments remind me of this article Jeremy https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2021/01/pandemic-goodbye-casual-friends/617839/
Karen Vernal
01:06:05
I am appreciating that authentic connection requires the ability to be both aware of and to name our emotions. I'd like to suggest Brene Brown's book; Atlas of the Heart, is an incredible resource . We need to learn the language in order to connect and create belonging.
Lauren Feaster
01:06:41
Thank you for these recommendations - totally agree, Karen
Paula Phillips (she/siya)
01:07:58
Karen-I have really enjoyed atlas of the heart and how she formatted the book
Lauryn Deck (she/her)
01:09:18
Exchange of knowledge and experiences
Katie Dillow
01:10:33
Yes! That is a great article, Paula.
Karen Vernal
01:12:55
Domique, I love your inspiration and commitment. Thank you!
Dominique Samari
01:13:09
Thank you Karen. :)
Pam Klein
01:13:29
Ditto Karen's comment!!
Paula Penebaker
01:15:11
Sounds like high school. Freshman year is exciting. Junior year is full of excitement (some anxiety about the nearing end). Senior year marks the end and start of something new. Sophomore is MEH! It’s kinda like 6th grade.
Katie Dillow
01:16:36
Paula, as someone currently living with two 6th graders, I can add that 6th grade is full of all kinds of DRAMA. :)
Katie Dillow
01:18:02
I love that, Jeremy - there is always room to bring more friends in!
Paula Penebaker
01:18:14
Katie, 6th grade was useless over 50 years. Seems like is a review of 1st thru 5th grades in prep for 7th grade. BORING!
Paula Penebaker
01:18:41
Great presentation!
Laura Bolger (She/Her)
01:19:13
Great presentation and love all the reading suggestions in the chat.
Lauryn Deck (she/her)
01:19:45
Simplest form- expand and prioritize your friendship
Laura Bolger (She/Her)
01:20:54
YES! So many hallway convos aren't happening because of the pandemic. Being deliberate right now is so important because of that
Paula Phillips (she/siya)
01:21:40
Great question Milika
Betsy Johnson
01:21:53
My daily work life is constant zoom meetings. I'm too exhausted to do more of it at the end of the day. Agree Malika!
Claire Becker (she/her)
01:22:05
This definitely resonates
Laura Bolger (She/Her)
01:22:17
yes, @betsy
Pam Klein
01:22:34
I like to have walks with friends. Even in the winter.
Betsy Johnson
01:22:58
Yes, Pam...time hiking or skiing. Activities that we love to bring us together.
Lauren Feaster
01:23:39
