This is a few days late, but it doesn’t dilute the message. I don’t think I need to say much regarding the protests in Wisconsin, except that last Saturday there were solidarity rallies across the country in all 50 states. I was born and raised in Madison, WI. I went to school and lived in Milwaukee for 7 years. While I live in Chicago now, a large part of me will always be in Wisconsin. My amazing mother is a 3rd grade teacher currently in her 34th year of teaching. I have friends who are teachers, union members and have been at the Capitol everyday since the start of the protests weeks ago. Believe me when I say, I stand with them in spirit, and so I stood with them in solidarity on this past Saturday.
Below are a few of the other hundreds that stood with us as well.
