Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr. pushes for Milwaukee residents to vote early
Civil Rights leader and icon Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr. was in Milwaukee Monday to unite and rally Milwaukee residents as they eagerly participate in this November’s presidential election. The activist was in town to help kick off early voting, which started that day, October 22. He’s pictured speaking to a group outside the campaign offices of Wisconsin Jobs Now, 2652 W. Fond du Lac Ave. He also made an appearance at MATC’s downtown campus, meeting with students in the rotunda of the Student Service Building, before they voted. Rev. Jackson is no stranger to Milwaukee, having previously visited the city on Election Day. He continues to keep the city on his radar as it consistently turns out the necessary votes in each election.
