LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Despite health experts strongly encouraging children to get vaccinated and wear masks, some others don’t necessarily agree.

A rally was held in La Crosse today with the message of unmasking kids, and being against mandated vaccines.

Organizers of the rally believe that mandating vaccines, especially for children, is not right, and potentially illegal.

They also believe that requiring masks for children is creating more harm than good, and taking their rights away.

“It’s a big issue for our children, and they’re struggling. And nobody is speaking up for them, they have no voice. They have no voice,” said Betty Ekern, an organizer for the event.

Some local organizations and businesses do require masks for children, and some may require vaccines as well.
