Thursday on Lake Effect: 50 Miles More Protest, Youth & Police Initiative, Artist Mark Klassen

Thursday on Lake Effect:

We catch up with one of the activists behind the 50 Miles More protest, as they return from their walk to Janesville. Then, our Project Milwaukee series continues with a look at the Youth and Police Initiative and how it could help mend community-police relationships. Later, what the Collaborative Community Committee is doing to ensure the Fire and Police Commission is paying attention to residents’ concerns. And we talk with Riverwest artist and gallery owner Mark Klassen, whose Air Conditioner installation won the 2018 Wisconsin Biennial.
