Wisconsin State AFL-CIO: "We must not be satisfied by platitudes and cosmetic change"

Wisconsin State AFL-CIO President Stephanie Bloomingdale (AFT) issued a statement on Monday in reaction to the police shooting of Jacob Blake, Jr., an unarmed Black man who was shot in the back in Kenosha: “We were shocked by yet another police shooting of an unarmed Black man in Kenosha.

Video shows a Kenosha police officer shooting Jacob Blake multiple times in the back at point blank range as he tried to get into his car. The horror was magnified by the presence of Mr. Blake’s young children in the vehicle. This is a shameful day for Kenosha, Wisconsin, and our nation.”
