Milwaukee, WI– The Coalition for Justice stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and responds to Governor Scott Walker’s recent responses to questions about the movement.
On Friday, August 28, 2015 at Red Arrow Park The Coalition for Justice along with other organizations, community leaders and concerned citizens will host a press conference calling Governor Scott Walker out on disregarding and disrespecting African Americans.
“The Governor’s remarks don’t come as a surprise to us not that he almost refused to answer the questions surrounding the Black Lives Matter Movement, but in the end he completely disregarded us and the work that we’re doing,” says Nate Hamilton, Co-Founder of the Coalition for Justice.” “With the comments he made we want to know where the Governor thinks that leaves African Americans. Are we not American or are we not voters?” Hamilton adds.
It’s time to call Governor Walker out on these comments and more.
