It is with great pleasure that we announce the Zeidler Center's 2017 Dinner Gala on Wednesday, November 15th, 2017! We invite our community supporters and partners to join us for an evening where we celebrate the work of this past year and discuss new ways of bridging communities through conversation!
During the dinner program, our keynote speaker, Dr. Samuel G. Freedman, an award-winning author, columnist, and professor, will be speaking on this year's theme: "Unity through Dialogue." A columnist for The New York Times and a professor at Columbia University, he is the author of the seven acclaimed books, most recently Breaking The Line: The Season in Black College Football That Transformed the Game and Changed the Course of Civil Rights (2013).
We will also hear brief remarks from Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn and Sheri Williams Pannel in support of several exciting partnerships with the Zeidler Center!
Founded in 2006, the Zeidler Center for Public Discussion is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people have difficult conversations. Our mission is to foster civil dialogue and invite trust in the midst of differences. We offer professional facilitation, team building, strategic planning and community engagement services, working with organizations, neighborhoods, businesses and faith communities across a range of issues. We believe that positive and sustainable community action aimed at repairing relationships must start with trust building and humanizing. In the last two years, the Zeidler Center's team of 400+ professional facilitators worked in 3 different countries and served 10,000+ dialogue participants. Learn more at www.zeidlercenter.org!
