Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

Danai Gurira believes it is every American’s civic duty to not just vote for Hillary Clinton for president of the United States but to get involved in the political process.

“That’s why I’m here,” she said. “I think it’s my civic responsibility for what happens in this country. I know that I stand on the blood, sweat and tears of those who have come before me and that my load is lighter because of them.”

Gurira visited the Racine County Democratic office Wednesday and talked to approximately 25 residents about how important this election is for the future of their families.

“I want the person who wants to move forward, who is about inclusion and not exclusion,” she explained about why she’s voting for Clinton. “She fights for women, for girls and for families. She made it her life’s work. It’s about service, not ambition.We are electing the most powerful person in the world for the next four or eight years, and that is a big responsibility.”
