  • Rise Of Hate And Bias Incidents In Wisconsin

    The Southern Poverty Law Center said it’s seen a rise in the number of hate groups around the nation for the second consecutive year. The center said this increase of hate groups is due to the rise of President Donald Trump and his rhetoric during the presidential campaign. There are nine hate groups in Wisconsin. We talk to a reporter who’s covered the hate groups in Wisconsin, as well as the rise in hate and bias incidents in the state.
