Several La Crosse organizations plan to rally at the Bullet Cab company at 9 a.m. Friday after a racial slur was spray-painted on the local business.
The organizations hosting the public event — One Community One Family — Hate Has No Business Here — are La Crosse Interfaith Shoulder to Shoulder Network, La Crosse Area Showing Up For Racial Justice and University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Campus Climate. In addition to these organizations, a variety of local officials and university groups have been invited.
The Facebook event states that “this is a peaceful rally and show of community support. The hate crime did occur but with this event, we are showing the community response and unity.” A GoFundMe Link to support the Bullet Cab company surpassed its $1,000 goal.
