The Urban League's annual "Equal Opportunity Day' luncheon was held at Milwaukee's Pfister Hotel Monday. FOX6's Aaron Maybin was the emcee for the event. 

The luncheon featured a panel discussion on 2023 milestones with Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley, Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson and Attorney John Daniels, Jr.
