Event Highlights for the Week of April 26, 2021

 

Events, activities, seminars, etc.

  • Madison Public Library, the Wisconsin Book Festival and the All of Us Research Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are joining forces to present a virtual author event series focused on a range of community health issues.  On Tuesday, April 27, at 7pm author Angela Garbes and her book, Like A Mother: A Feminist Journey through the Science and Culture of Pregnancy, will be featured.  In Like A Mother, Garbes provides a rigorously researched and compelling look at the physiology, biology and psychology of pregnancy and motherhood, informed by in-depth reportage and personal experience.  Register to attend Like A Mother: https://www.wisconsinbookfestival.org/events/mother
  • Safe Communities is putting on a drug take-back event on April 24.  Access to the regular Med-Drop boxes at the police stations have been restricted due to the pandemic, and this is a time for residents to safely and correctly dispose of prescription and over-the-counter drugs.  The event is happening at several locations both in and out of Madison.
  • Join members of the Office of Crime Victim Services (OCVS) Housing Workgroup on April 26 at 11am for a listening session to learn more about what Domestic Violence Housing First could look like in your community, how it could foster safety and healing for marginalized survivors, and what you can do to advocate for successful pilot initiatives in diverse communities across Wisconsin.  Registration will remain open until the day of the meeting.
