Courageous Conversations

Courageous Conversations is an ongoing speaker series hosted by Awake Milwaukee to build community, deepen understanding, and encourage conversation about the complex issues surrounding sexual abuse in the Catholic Church.

Our first Courageous Conversation took place on December 10, and we are looking forward to our next event on January 21, 2021. We plan to continue these gatherings regularly throughout the year.
