About Mandi

Hello! I’m Mandi and I’m committed to making Milwaukee a sustainable city. I worry about how climate change and environmental injustices are impacting our lives today, and in the future, and I want to do what I can to prevent it.

I believe that our actions are powerful. Everything we do from small changes we make in our daily lives, to big changes we advocate for in policy and process, has an impact. We have the ability to improve the lives of all Milwaukee residents and the future of this planet.

This idea, along with every one of you taking action, inspire and empower me! I believe that if we each do what we can, and work together as a community, we can build a sustainable Milwaukee. Thank you for being here!
