New news! The La Crosse Independent is a new source for local news, especially news that's not covered (well) elsewhere. Their description:
The La Crosse Independent is a progressive, people-powered, online magazine dedicated to providing news and analysis on issues that matter to the people of La Crosse and the wider Coulee Region. We’re looking for volunteer writers to join us, especially those with an interest in covering labor and environmental issues. Please consider subscribing to our newsletter, which comes out every two weeks, below, or follow our Twitter or Facebook * pages. For more information, contact us at lacrosseindependent@gmail.com.
Check it out and, if you can, donate to help this important new resource grow and thrive.

And then, do some self-study and get some news you may not have heard before. Check out Racial (In)justice - A Tour of Black Experiences in Downtown La Crosse. Learn about what's really going on in our city through this collaborative effort of the La Crosse Public Library and the Hear Here! project.

And then, help others spread the news and bring the news
Get tickets for (or donate to) B.L.A.C.K.'s Black & Gold Fundraising Party (September 13)

Support those who are helping others learn about their rights and power. Cia Siab, Inc. is a nonprofit agency that relies on contributions to provide essential services to members of the Hmoob community. COVID-19 and economic upheaval do not end the need for their services.
Our programs were created with the aim to (re)build a vibrant, healthy Hmoob community through the investment of time and resources into young people through the teaching reteaching and reclaiming healthy traditional family/kinship and relationships with Elders as a framework to enact change.  The projects had many layers that focuses on traditional healthy Hmoob relationships/community, always by using the lens of power, privilege, race, patriarchy, and colonization.
