Kenosha is just really a big small town, isn’t it? You can start your day encountering a stranger who asks you for money to get breakfast and end it in a meeting with our mayor. We all need to be able to show we care about each other—regardless of politics, race, gender and sexual orientation, social and financial status, and disabilities of all kinds. How do we navigate all the diversity here and be positive members of our community? Ginger Helgeson has learned some tricks along the way during 20 years of working in our systems and on our streets to provide human services and supports to people who are sometimes challenging and always beautifully unique. Join us to talk about how you can make things better for all of us here in our fair city.

Ginger Helgeson has worked for UW-Parkside’s Women’s Center, Kenoshans Against Sexual Assault, Pathways of Courage, and Women and Childrens Horizons. She is currently employed at Kenosha Human Development Services as an Outreach and Crime Victim Specialist, as well as a parttime Adult Crisis Worker.
