AFT and AFT-Wisconsin Call on WI Attorney General Schimel to Implement Plan of Action Post Charlottesville

Yesterday, in response to Charlottesville, AFT President Randi Weingarten called on US Attorney General Jeff Sessions and all state attorney generals to use their powers to ensure the safety and security of all communities.  In her letter to Wisconsin Attorney General, Brad Schimel, Weingarten calls for "a clear plan of action that will ensure that bias-motivated violence and harassment is prosecuted swiftly and agressively."  

AFT-WI President, Kim Kohlhaas, joined Weingarten's calls for clear and decisisive action from AG Schimel.  "We cannot allow hate and intolerance to go unchecked in Wisconsin or in our nation.  Attorney General Schimel must send the message that hate-based violence has no home in Wisconsin."
