Several Milwaukee buildings are displaying red, white, and blue lights in solidarity against the coronavirus. Participants include Discovery World, Milwaukee County Historical Society, the U.S. Bank Building, the Gas Light Building, Northwestern Mutual, and more.
“Milwaukee is a special community and as the history and storytelling organization that serves our people, we wanted to be a part of acknowledging our shared past, the present we are experiencing, and, importantly, the stronger community we will become after these shared experiences,” says Milwaukee County Historical Society Director Mame McCully. “We are grateful for the opportunity to join others in this effort.”
“Discovery World is participating because it’s an opportunity to lend support in showing that Milwaukee’s organizations are committed to collaboration and helping one another when we need it the most,” says Discovery World Senior Public Relations Manager Paul Fladten. “We hope that when a child looks out their window at night and sees a Milwaukee unified in red, white, and blue they’ll know that people in our community are working together to get through this uncertainty and build a stronger future.”
Resilience and hope are allowing us to overcome the pandemic. We are all in this together.
