Opinion | No, men are not alright. And women are paying the price.

"... when I typed “how to control your woman” from Venice, California, the search engine suggested a litany of articles instructing a male reader on how to psychologically abuse his intimate partner. One of the first links Google proposed was a blog post offering step-by-step guidance for men on how to restrict what a female partner wears, where she travels, what she eats and even what she spends her money on. These are all signature features of “coercive control..."

If men are sick of being told they’re the problem, perhaps it’s time more of them become part of the solution.

We Got This Milwaukee

ATTENTION!!!!

Dear Friends and Community:

On Wednesday, October 22nd starting at 8 AM there will be a truck load of A1 food boxes delivered to the "We Got This Community Garden" located on the corner of 9th & Ring Street, 824 West Ring Street.

What I need most are bodies, men and women that would like to help unload the truck. I'm calling on all the young brothers of We Got This, that can and will to come help and meet me there. I will arrive at 7 AM. I need about 25 people to join me and help us feed the people. The truck will arrive at 8 AM.

Last week Senator Lena Taylor called me and we were able to retrieve and give away 5 pallets of food within 2 hours. People are hungry and they need food. We need your help.

I am also hoping someone can come forth with a forklift and/or a pallet remover. We have 26 pallets of food being delivered.

The food is free to all that come to receive it. "I believe that as long as people have good food in the house we can stop some of the blood shed in the streets."

Any questions call 414-779-2476.

I really need my brothers to come help me.
We Got This! Let's feed the people.

Good Morning and Happy Juneteenth!

Today is the day we commemorate the ending of slavery in the United States. Although President Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, it was until June 19, 1865, that the last of enslaved African-Americans were set free in Texas.

On this day, Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger landed in Galveston, TX to declare that the enslaved were free men under the order of the emancipation proclamation.

There is always more work to do, but today we pause to celebrate our ancestors' steps into freedom.

End Abuse PSA on Domestic Violence

While we are being asked to stay safe at home, we know that home is not safe for everyone. For some, home includes violence, and many folks in our communities don’t have a place to call home at all. If you are experiencing sexual or domestic violence, help remains available.
