Western Wisconsin Anti-Violence Programs Create “Black Lives Matter” Video

Seven anti-violence programs in Northwestern Wisconsin collaborated to create an awareness and education video articulating reasons why they believe Black Lives Matter.
“The regional agencies all came together to work on and publish this video because we want to support our communities in understanding the root oppressions that cause violence against women are linked to racism. We can’t end one form of violence without addressing the other,” says Geri Segal, Executive Director of Family Support Center, which serves individuals, families, and communities who have been affected by violence in Chippewa and Eau Claire counties.
The video can be found at bit.ly/WIBLMvideo.
The agencies involved in the video are Black & Brown Womyn Power Coalition, Inc., The Bridge to Hope, Community Referral Agency, Family Support Center, Oakwood Haven, Turningpoint, and Embrace.
