The Milwaukee Business Journal asked members of the local business, civil rights and philanthropic community to weigh in on the turmoil in Kenosha following the shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man, by police officers on Sunday, and what can be done to heal the community.
Meanwhile, corporations, organizations, small business owners and residents in Kenosha are rallying together. Downtown Kenosha Inc. is partnering with other organizations to launch a match fundraising campaign of $1 million to support small businesses in Kenosha that have been damaged or will be closed for some time due to being boarded up.
The head of Public Allies Inc., one of the largest community organizations in the U.S. with national headquarters in Milwaukee, of which Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley is an alum, said more needs to be done to bring equity and justice to communities.
