About Common Ground.
Milwaukee Rising was born out of Common Ground’s efforts to address the foreclosure crisis in our neighborhoods.
40,000 members strong, Common Ground is a non-partisan group of active citizens that has been identifying pressing social issues and bringing about creative solutions in Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Waukesha
and Washington Counties since 2008.
Affiliated with the IAF, Common Ground members have been hard at work addressing and making real and tangible change on issues including youth jobs, transportation, housing, family issues, affordable healthcare, and education.
COMMON GROUNDS CURRENT ISSUE CAMPAIGNS:
Members of Common Ground identify problems and concerns in our communities. Through research, relationships and action these problems and concerns become our Issue Campaigns. We usually have more than one active campaign at any given time. The more Issue Campaigns we win — the stronger we get.
