Voices in Union: with Reggie Jackson and Maria Hamilton - is a weekly podcast that focuses on the African American Diaspora in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It connects local concerns to national trends on social justice, and educates the general population on the historical context of those issues. The program’s purpose is to build understanding, with a message of hope and reconciliation, and to offer underrepresented voices a platform to be heard. This episode includes a discussion about the developments around Alvin Cole's case, the abuse of his mother by Wauwatosa police officers and their brutality against peaceful protesters, and the lack of an authority that can provide relief for people seeking justice.
