MADISON (WKOW) -- In the WKOW documentary, "Our Wisconsin: Equity & Justice For All?" we examined a series of serious racial disparities in Wisconsin that are the biggest gaps in the nation. Awareness of the issues is just the start. Education and action are necessary if equitable changes are to happen. Below are some answers to the question, "What can I do?" This resource will be a continuing work in progress, so let me know if you have any suggestions to add at, firstname.lastname@example.org.

READ local minority newspapers/websites; The Madison Times, Madison 365.
