All of us on the left and right are concerned about the violence MPS students and teachers have to deal with on a regular basis.
One organization has a solution to the problem that has a better affect on kids' lives than handcuffs.
For the past few years the Peace Learning Center has been working with MPS students to teach them a positive, non-violent approach to their interpersonal relationships. Through their programs they have reached over 2,000 students, equipping them to navigate there way through school to a more productive adult life.
On Wednesday, May 23rd there will be a fundraiser dinner for the Peace Learning Center at the Northshore Presbyterian Church in Shorewood.
Join Mayor Tom Barrett to recognize and support this positive force in our city.
Tickets are $25 and available by contacting the church office at 414-332-8130 during business hours to reserve your ticket, or contact Keith Schmitz (firstname.lastname@example.org / 414.963.0847).
This is your chance to show the community's solidarity behind programs such as these which are achieving real progress.
Along with Chinese diner provided by Royal Garden in Glendale, look in on a demonstration of the techniques the PLC use to help MPS students interact successfully.
The dinner is at 6:00pm and doors open at 5:30pm.
