July 19, 2011- The MLHC welcomed Milwaukee City Health Commissioner Bevan Baker to their new office in the Council for the Spanish Speaking Hillview Building. The MLHC engaged the Health Commissioner in a conversation about budget cuts and his vision to improve the health of Latinos in Milwaukee.

November 4, 2010 – The MLHC joined the Black Health Coalition of Wisconsin, ACLU, Sierra Club and Midwest Environmental Advocates in an effort to put stricter pollution controls on the coal fired power plant in the Menomonee Valley. This plant is located on the near south side of Milwaukee – in the heart of the Latino community. The MLHC is especially concerned about this environmental justice issue because it affects the health of our air, water and families. Thank you to all who signed on to the effort or who came the hearing!
