    Read more about why Crissi joined MULYP!

    I am incredibly humbled and honored to be selected as the Milwaukee Urban League Young Professionals Member of the Month. This is very exciting seeing as I am an avid supporter of the organization and its efforts to strengthen the African-American community as well as communities of color all over the country. The reason I joined is because I strongly believe in community-based work and believing in others is key to a thriving community.

    As a young, African-American, single mother living on Milwaukee’s north side, the odds have not always been in my favor. I grew up in the foster care system, had to deal with my mother’s substance abuse, and seen my father be gunned down all at a young age. I have constantly had to battle the system and defy the statistics usually placed upon so many of dealing with similar issues. These low moments in my life have not deterred me but instead inspire me to help others. In 2018 I created Jackson House LLC as a vessel for those of us in the community to help improve our city one deed at a time. At Jackson House our mission is to help the homeless, clean up trash in the community and overall change the narrative for our people. I am also currently a junior at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee obtaining my bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Science.

    Even though being a full time working mommy, a student and entrepreneur is no easy task, I will continue to support The Urban League in their mission to help people of color achieve civil rights and social and economic equality so that we can become more self-reliant members of society. We need as many examples of excellence among us as possible & I am extremely grateful that despite the shortcomings, pitfalls and challenges life has handed me at times, a little brown girl from MKE has still been able to make a change not just in this city but within herself. That is proof that no matter who you are or what the circumstances are you too can rise and achieve your dreams.

    Thank you so much Milwaukee Urban League Young Professionals!
