The Bridge Athem

The Bridge Project is a campaign to inspire Milwaukeeans to unite for violence prevention. Bridges have long been symbols of making connections, not just connecting two masses of land, but also connecting people. The launch of the Bridge Project is meant to do just that, connect people of goodwill – youth and adults, who are working on activities all across Milwaukee to build bridges of peace and non-violence.

Help us reach our goal by watching the video and sharing with your family and friends. For more information about The Bridge Project visit Tweet about the bridge at #bridgeMKE!
