Leaders deliver State of Black and Brown Wisconsin Address in Madison
MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) – Leaders gathered in Madison to deliver what they called the “State of Black and Brown Wisconsin Address.”
Several speakers spoke about the problems facing Black and Latino residents. State Senator Lena Taylor said those problems require an “all hands on deck” effort statewide.
"I would be remiss if I told you about our problems in our state in being the worst place in the nation to raise a black child and be a black American. This is not fake news. This is real,” said State Sen. Lena Taylor (D).
While Monday’s event focused on “black and brown” issues, members of the group said they want to expand it to include other minorities in the future.
