Monona Terrace Convention and Community Center
Cost: $15 includes lunch (before September 5th)

We invite you to join other residents for a one-day celebration about making and supporting community leaders and sustaining healthy, walkable neighborhoods, for all of Madison. The citywide neighborhood conference, Strong Leaders, Healthy Places, will be a day packed full of stories, talks, and discussions recognizing all the good works being done by residents, neighborhoods, and the other caretakers of our community.
The major focus for 2014?s event will be building a strong civic infrastructure to support equitable, healthy, and walkable neighborhoods. Don Edwards, Director of Justice and Sustainability Associates, will be making a trip to Madison from DC with the generous support of MGE. He is well known for engaging disadvantaged communities, being technologically savvy in capturing community voices, and working tirelessly to ensure conversations among people from different social and economic backgrounds on citywide plans and revitalization projects.
Several workshops will focus on the City of Madison Equity and Social Justice Initiative and how neighborhoods can use the principles to assess policies, plans and programs occurring or proposed in their neighborhoods. Building capacity, working effectively, and sharing success stories will get you inspired, encouraged and better equipped to help our neighborhoods be all they can be.
