A-LEGO’s mission is to help renew the community of Milwaukee by bridging the new world of ideas into action; to deepen the understanding of issues that must be resolved; and to achieve racial and ethical equity as our society moves through the great transformation of the 21st century. The group consists of approximately 100 African American women, who are cutting edge thinkers, academicians, business leaders, high-level government representatives, social service executives, and key community advocates who are dedicated to activating sweeping change in the community. The group was founded by Hattie Daniels-Rush.
