Film Screening: Citizen Jane: Battle for the City part of Jane's Walk MKE at Mitchell Street

Saturday, May 11, 2019 - 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM

Categories: Educational Interest

 Join us for a special screening of Citizen Jane: Battle for the City sponsored by Jane's Walk MKE. Jane Jacobs (1916-2006) was an urbanist and activist whose writings championed a community-based approach to city building.  Citizen Jane is a timely tale of what can happen when engaged citizens fight the power for the sake of a better world. Arguably no one did more to shape our understanding of the modern American city than Jane Jacobs, the visionary activist and writer who fought to preserve urban communities in the face of destructive development projects.     About Jane's Walk MKE:  Jane's Walk MKE embodies urban activist Jane Jacobs' legacy by organizing free, resident-led neighborhood explorations and building community connections through:   ·         observation and dialogue, ·         education and storytelling, and ·         collectively reimagining and changing the places in which Milwaukeeans live, work, and play.   Visit for more information
