13th Amendment - 150 years - It means a lot to all that consider themselves AMERICANS

FOR THE PEOPLE - Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

Section 2.  Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.


We remember every time an elected-appointed-hired and donor for hire engaged twice in 2015 to reduce this Amendment to "0" in the Milwaukee Streetcar and NBA Bucks Mega Greed Deal - 30 years of Involuntary Servitude.

We remember Tom Barrett, Mayor, Chris Abele, County Executive and Scott Walker, Governor - It is Cheaper to Keep Them - Wisconsin Bill 209.

We will not forget the awful and brutal history of slavery, NOR today's form of 21st Century slavery.

    • The Fresh Coast Classic began in 2007, and since then has become more than just a basketball tournament. People travel from around the world to experience this classic. Running Rebels, a Milwaukee community organization, wanted to find a way to get youth interested in things other than what they would see going on daily in their neighborhoods and provide access to college and career pathways. This event exposes Milwaukee area students to many educational opportunities available at HBCU's as well as colleges in Wisconsin and surrounding states and promises to be a great, family fun-filled weekend of events!

Directness - Moving the Needle to Character and Strength in the Public Square

Pass It On
November 4, 2015
MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee Professionals Association LLC continues to lead in the Action-oriented pursuit of excellence in providing the public square with an alternative and the natural PUSH for "Informed decision-making".  

Mary Glass, Chief Visionary Officer is known for her "directness".  In other words, she ask the pointed questions in accountability and transparency when seeking clarity and reasons for lack of due diligence in the marketplace by those in leadership.  
No one is exempt.

You will time-after-time hear Glass speak of research, fact-finding, and her hitting the floor running every day and the discovery of day-to-day disrespect by elected-appointed-hired-donor for hire government officials.

"I am direct in my questions but as a rule civil - I feel that each of us have a stewardship, leadership and citizenship responsibility in creating the necessary balance in our public square to keep the toxic wrongdoings from becoming status quo," said Glass.
