Happy Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend
Citizen Action Members Stand in Solidarity with Students on UWEC Campus Following Racist Threats.
On Monday, November 25th, several Citizen Action members joined students and faculty on the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire Campus to stand in solidarity as they protest the recent threats made against the student organization, Black Male Empowerment. Our members stood in observance and in the capacity of providing protection from negative feedback. The protest garnered approximately 350 students and community members as they stood silently in the middle of campus with signs decrying the lack of action from school administrators as well as a march to Chancellor Jim Schmidt’s office with a list of demands to make UW-EC more inclusive and more safe for students of color. Thank you to all of those who joined from Citizen Action and stood up for those marginalized in the community to let it be known that hate speech, of any kind, will not be tolerated.
