KENOSHA — A college scholarship for the children of Jacob Blake was announced Monday by the Americans Resisting Minority & Ethnic Discrimination (ARMED).

A $20,000 scholarship will go to Blake's kids who are 3,5 and 8.

In addition to the scholarship, ARMED has created a hotline to report civil rights violations - 877-757-6857.

Blake was shot seven times in the back by a Kenosha police officer Sunday evening. Afterwards, protests and unrest ensued in Kenosha with several buildings vandalized and a car lot full of cars set on fire.
