Today on Lake Effect, we break down the results of the Milwaukee Jewish Federation’s 2020 audit of anti-semitic incidents and what could be the cause of some troubling trends. Then, we’ll learn about the Milwaukee-based platform “Kin,” which hopes to foster conversations and understanding across political and racial divides. We’ll learn how practicing midwifery has changed during the pandemic as part of our COVID Earners series. Plus, we’ll tell you about five things to do in Milwaukee this month.
