As war broke out in the Middle East, Yeshimabeit urged that until we reverse engineer and disable the model of inequality that has created apartheid conditions right here in America. She quotes Dr. King, who, before his death, spoke of two Americas.

Our country will never be able to lead the world in AI until reconcile the two Americas - where some are prosperous and others are experiencing a social death. There is no better place to start than in Milwaukee, America’s heartland. When we heal the heart, we heal the body.

We are excited to continue to support the work of leaders like Nadiyah Johnson, Founder of the Milky Way Tech Hub.
