Meet the Fellow: Addie Lipson, Milwaukee, WI

Addie Lipson was already an experienced community activist and organizer in Milwaukee, WI when she decided to become a Work First Fellow. She did so because she wanted to continue to create positive change for her city while working one-on-one with individuals who have been harmed the most by the city’s structural segregation and economic policies. Not only does she get to make a direct impact in the city that means so much to her, but the America Works site she works at is right down the street from her favorite Milwaukee landmark, the Hoan Bridge.
