HOLMEN, Wis. (WKBT)- At Holmen High School, students in the Diverse Cultural Alliance and the Equity Team have partnered with Hope Restores to put on an education program in honor of MLK Day.

The program unveils the perspectives of black youth and their parents in the La Crosse area.

Amplifying Black Voices will be an evening of viewing a film and having a facilitated discussion intended to engage our community in necessary conversations about bias, racism, and privilege.

“A lot of the questions surround what you took away from the video, what does this call you to do now. Especially since it’s a lot of stories from students, how are you rethinking the school system and how we talk about diversity and inclusion in the school,” said Holmen junior, Jordan Toso.

The program is free and open to anyone.

It starts at 7 pm on MLK Day at the Holmen High School Fine Arts Center.
