At Mueller Communications, we recognize that persistent and systemic racism is a deep wound in our country and our community. We believe we can use our voices, our influence, and our power to empower those who have been oppressed for decades, in our beloved Milwaukee and beyond. At Mueller, we encourage our team members to be engaged and informed on issues of racial injustice. As part of this effort, we have begun to compile and continue to update and refine a list of resources designed to educate and inform on the issue of systemic racism.
This list is far from exhaustive. Help us expand it by sharing your suggested resources, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
