“It’s been inspiring to see people around Wisconsin coming together to protest police brutality. From big protests in cities, to local ones in small communities, as a state, we’re setting ourselves up for change. Already we can see some of that change taking place: people who have never taken the time to think about the relationship the police have to our communities (especially in terms of excessive force driven by racism) are now speaking up and learning. Keep engaging, keep talking, and keep listening!”
