Thought of the Week

Each person must live their life as a model for others. - Rosa Parks

Member Spotlight - Dave Kliber

Born in Detroit, Michigan in 1951, Dave was raised in Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan and graduated from Grosse Pointe (South) High School in 1969. As a boy, he enjoyed little league baseball for 6 years, was active in Boy Scouts, achieving Eagle Scout in 1964. Thanks to encouragement from his Mom (now 100 in Michigan) Dave learned to play guitar and played in a few bands playing and singing 60s and 70s rock, pop hits, easy listening music, mostly in Michigan but also some solo performances in Wisconsin in the 80s. 


Dave also played lots of tennis, a sport that his Dad loved, and both played for their colleges. He also played power volleyball for Western Michigan University and Detroit Turners in the 70s. He has played golf since he took lessons when he was 8 and still enjoys the game. He and his wife Mandy do a lot of bicycling too, and raced sailboats in the 80s. He also owned a 20’ day sailboat in the 70s and 80s. He and Mandy met while snow skiing (another sport they loved) at Vail in 1987. He and Mandy are celebrating 34 years of marriage this year). She is a Nurse Practitioner with Advocate Aurora Healthcare, and also worked in pharmaceutical sales with Pfizer in the 90s.

Dave has lived in Milwaukee for 40 years, when he was promoted and moved from Schaumburg, IL where he ran operations as Assistant Manager of Woodfield for a year. Dave continued his career in Wisconsin and has lived in Mequon for 33 years. They have 2 children, Stephanie (30) living in Denver and Jason (28) in Brown Deer. Both are single so far.

The Redress Movement
The Redress Movement

The Redress Movement is an emerging racial justice organization that aims to organize racially and ethnically diverse local movements in communities throughout the U.S.  We will help residents to build and wield collective power needed to redress residential segregation of their own and neighboring communities.

We believe that just as segregation was caused by specific laws, specific policies and specific decision makers, segregation and its multi-generational impacts can be redressed. Our vision is a society no longer divided and separated.

While we know that segregation that took decades to establish cannot be undone overnight, we are determined to take the first steps on an unwavering path to redress it as a moral and constitutional obligation.


Originally from rural Illinois, Brittany has called the Greater Milwaukee Area homebase for the past 16 years. After graduating from UW-Milwaukee with a double major in Global Studies and Spanish, she was selected as one of 26 volunteers for the inaugural cohort to the Republic of Kosovo with the Peace Corps serving as an ESL instructor for two years.

She began her organizing career volunteering to knock doors and ask voters about the issues that mattered most to them. She was serving as the Financial Director in the home stretch of a Wisconsin Supreme Court race when the COVID pandemic hit. Nationwide, campaigns turned to digital organizing and physically-distant outdoor events. Likewise Brittany went on to work for several local races and coordinated campaigns focusing on digital organizing, car rallies, and literature drops to help turn out the vote in the fall of 2020.

That same year, she founded Break the Silence in the Burbs (BSB) to create a space in Milwaukee suburbs to amplify BIPOC voices and for residents to show up in solidarity with demands for justice for victims of police brutality and call for systemic change. In partnership with allied and Black-led organizations, BSB co-organized dozens of marches, community conversations, and direct-actions including letter writing campaigns to state legislators and school boards in support of anti-racist policies.

Brittany looks forward to helping the Redress Movement create an inclusive, multiracial coalition reflective of the Greater Milwaukee Area to effectively redress the legacy of racial segregation and advance housing justice in southeatern Wisconsin.
