5 from 6:30-8:30 PM at Marquette University's Weasler Auditorium.

Milwaukee area middle school, high school and Marquette University
students have planned this event and will ask questions of the
candidates. The forum will be moderated by the Honorable
Janine Geske, Distinguished Professor of Law at Marquette University.
This event is sponsored by a “Raise Your Voice” grant from the
Upper Midwest Campus Compact Consortium with support from the
Pew Charitable Trusts. Other sponsors include: Teachers For Social
Justice (a Marquette student organization), Rethinking Schools,
Urban Underground, 9 to 5 Poverty Network Initiative, Micah Youth
Council and Esperanza Unida. The event is planned in association
with Marquette University's Mission Week celebration, which in
part reflects on the role of leadership in our communities.
Each year in February, the Marquette community pauses in a special
way to recall our common mission and the values that unify and
inspire us. As a Catholic, Jesuit university, we are committed
to creating an inclusive environment that strives toward excellence
in all that we do, encourages a life of faith, cultivates leadership,
and expresses itself in service to others. Mission Week helps
us to remember our larger purpose and allows us to reflect on
the Ignatian heritage and spirituality that guide us throughout
