Summer Justice Institute Mission:

The ACLU of Wisconsin and partnering community groups and leaders will provide approximately 40 high school students, a two-week intensive camp experience teaching essential leadership and social justice issues, skills and techniques for civic engagement.  Public speaking, civil liberties and civil rights, organizing, visual arts, self-care, current events and threats to our society are among the issues we will be exploring. From issues in Immigration, LGBTQ+, Mass Incarceration,Voting Rights, and more, students will become experts on the issues currently being confronted in Wisconsin today.

Students will need to arrange to be at Marquette University (at the Eisenberg Reading Room in Sensenbrenner Hall) by 10am every day of the Summer Justice Institute.  Bus passes for public transportation may be provided if needed. 

Lunch will be provided every day for students, please note in the attached permission forms if your child has any dietary restrictions.  Students will be released at 4pm each day and are responsible for arranging transportation home. 

On one evening there will also be a community building event at Bounce Milwaukee (2801 S 5th Ct, Milwaukee, WI 53207), there is a separate permission form and students will be transported to Bounce and will need to arrange rides home.
