1) to ensure that families living in poverty have an adequate supply of diapers for their infants and toddlers;
2) to raise community awareness that “basic human needs” include diapers and that these needs are not being met for children living in poverty;
3) to advocate for policy reform so that diapers are included in the definition of and provision for the “basic human needs” of families

In 2004, Mark Eppli noticed a problem. The Marquette University professor became acutely aware of the critically low rates of people of color working in commercial real estate development in Milwaukee. Not one to walk away from a problem, he set off to find a solution with the help of Milwaukee’s community leaders, politicians and local organizations. What he built became the Associates in Commercial Real Estate, or ACRE, a program that has become a mainstay in the city. LISC’s Tope Folarin shares the story of how ACRE got started, the impact it has had in the city, and the inspiring graduates who help keep it moving forward.
