MILWAUKEE — Buildings in downtown Milwaukee are glowing in red, white, and blue as a sign of hope during this health crisis.

Building owners in downtown Milwaukee were encouraged to illuminate their facades with red, white, and blue lights. They did just that.
This beacon of hope comes as the city of Milwaukee, and Wisconsin faces significant financial and health issues that seem to be just beginning.
"Now is the time for our community and nation to come together," said Beth Weirick, CEO of Milwaukee Downtown, BID #21. "Already, there's been a tremendous outpouring of support for businesses, employees, artists, and musicians, and we remain committed to furthering this goodwill."
Several buildings took part in the event Tuesday night, and Milwaukee Downtown BID #21 asks that other businesses join in. Monday's illuminations included the U.S. Bank Center, Northwestern Mutual, The Gas Light Building, 833 East Michigan, The Pfister Hotel, and the M-K-E letters at General Mitchell International Airport.
These buildings, and any who join in, should remain lit through March 31.
