Toni Wagner works with Common Ground of Southeastern Wisconsin, and she and her colleague, Kathleen Scott, explain the important work of Common Ground and Milwaukee Rising, two organizations that focus on foreclosure issues, education, and health insurance concerns (just to name a few). Milwaukee Rising is attempting to rehabilitate 100 homes in the Sherman Park neighborhood. I met with Toni, Kathleen, and a couple other of their colleagues at Sherman Perk to hear what they had to say about Common Ground's and Milwaukee Rising's work with Milwaukee in general and Sherman Park in particular.
