At their Thursday, March 23, 2023 meeting the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors celebrated Women’s History Month by honoring Milwaukee women who embody this year’s theme of “Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope.”
“As we come to the end of Women History Month, I want to recognize these outstanding women who are truly the definition of community servants,” said Supervisor Priscilla E.
