Milwaukee's New Jim Crow - Time to Act on May 17

A recent report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation showed that Wisconsin is the worst state in the country in protecting the well-being of African American children based on 12 key indicators. Milwaukee, home of 2/3s of the state's African American population, is suffering under these realities. It's time for community leaders of Milwaukee to wake up to the growing segregation and inequalities in our metropolitan area.  
People will have the opportunity to commemorate the Brown v. Board Decision on May 17, it's 60th anniversary, AND to participate in a call to action to address the ravages of segregation and inequality that haunt our community.
Join us on May 17 to demand  the schools and communities our children deserve. More info at SchoolsAndCommunitiesUnited.org
