Change is Needed

 August 26, 2020

To our local community:  

On behalf of Milwaukee Public Schools, we extend our deepest thoughts and prayers to Mr. Jacob Blake, his family, friends, and the entire Kenosha community. Once again, we are tired and overwhelmed by the brutal and senseless shooting of another Black man by the people sworn to serve and protect.   

These continuous instances of injustice to members of our local community and communities nationwide must stop. Our families, staff, and communities, especially our young people, are going through what seems like one of the toughest times of our lives. The COVID-19 pandemic, school closure and reopening, and the recurring of these racist and unjust acts are traumatic and unsettling.

In times like this, it will take the efforts of all of us to move forward. We need compassion, healing, and justice to be restored in the lives of our children.

We need more than awareness. We need immediate change.
