Thursday on Lake Effect: Talking About Racism, Social Upheaval, Milwaukee Riverkeepers

Thursday on Lake Effect:

A child and family therapist gives tips on how to talk to kids about racism. Then, we learn why people aren’t just frustrated about racial justice and look at the many things factoring into social unrest. Plus, this year’s river cleanup had to be canceled, but we hear how people are continuing to do their part.
