Take a stand against hate and bigotry in La Crosse!


Recently the city of La Crosse, Wisconsin has seen several acts of hate, bigotry, and racism, particularly targeting immigrants and Muslims. We, especially White residents of La Crosse, need to step up and express our collective opposition to these hateful acts NOW! Silence is not an option. As a community, we need to make a unified, visible statement that “Hate Has No Home Here.
 
In order to demonstrate that the overwhelming majority of our community is actively opposed to racism and that all are welcome here, we are organizing a visual campaign of yard signs with the message: Hate Has No Home Here. (See image above.)

Our goal is to raise awareness, counteract hateful messages, and let our neighbors of diverse backgrounds know that they are welcome in La Crosse — and that ideologies of hatred are not welcome.

Whether or not you live in La Crosse, your contribution is appreciated. All funds will be used for the purchase of the “Hate Has No Home Here” lawn signs for the La Crosse community. None of the organizers or distributors will profit from this effort. This campaign is non-partisan and not affiliated with any institution or political campaign.  
 
Community partners supporting this effort include: the Weigent-Hogan Neighborhood Association , the La Crosse Interfaith Shoulder-to-Shoulder Network , and the UWL Anti-Islamophobia Working Group.
