Statement from Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair on UW-Madison Efforts to Improve Racial Climate
"As a mother who has a child attending UW-Madison, I am grateful the school is taking the appropriate steps to ensure she receives an education in the most inclusive environment possible," said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning.
“I applaud the efforts by the University of Wisconsin-Madison to make their campus more inclusive. They are taking the appropriate steps to ensure every student, regardless of the color of their skin, is treated fairly at UW-Madison.
“As our flagship university, it speaks volumes that UW-Madison’s leadership is listening to the student body’s call to create an environment that reflects and respects the backgrounds of everyone. I applaud the university leadership, the student leadership, and activists for working together to improve and strengthen UW-Madison.
“We live in a world made of people from all walks of life and backgrounds. It is important that students’ educational climate reflects the multicultural and diverse world they will join after leaving collegiate life. The investment UW-Madison is making better prepares our young students for this transition.
