A Message to Our Community

The UW-Madison Division of Extension is deeply saddened about the senseless violence directed toward Jacob Blake and his family in Kenosha. This is another display of unnecessary police force that makes our communities less safe. This is yet another preventable action that undermines the connectedness and cohesiveness of our communities. Extension strongly condemns all forms of bigotry and racism. We are embarking on intentional steps to make ours a more equitable, anti-racist, non-biased, and inclusive organization. We stand behind actions to ensure each and every person is treated equitably and does not live in fear of those entrusted with their safety.

We are in this together; and we are committed to engaging in the conversations and difficult work necessary to bring about a more just and equitable society.

Sincerely,
The Winnebago County Extension team
