53212 Presents joined the Milwaukee Coalition Against Hate to create the "Brighter Days" music video and will be honored by Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett on Friday, June 12 at noon at Milwaukee's City Hall in a ceremony celebrating unity, love and respect. Join us and check out the music video here.

The Milwaukee Coalition Against Hate is comprised of individual citizens, leaders, organizations, and businesses whose collective passion, commitment, energy and expertise are focused on stopping racism, prejudice, and inequalities. We work together to make our city a safer place for everyone to live. Together we gain strength for this vital work through faith, art and respect; we believe inclusive, collective efforts will prevail over hate.


The Unity Against Hate Song is an opportunity for our diverse community to make an impact in Milwaukee and to change the narrative and negative climate in Milwaukee and beyond. Contact organizer Tracey Dent to get involved!

CARES Act Allows $300 Above-the-Line Charitable Donation Deduction

This provision in the CARES Act is specifically for those who don’t itemize their deductions and would typically not get any tax benefit for donations. Since it’s considered an above-the-line deduction, the IRS applies it when calculating your adjusted gross income (AGI). 

In plain English, if you donate up to $300 in cash to a qualified organization, your AGI will be reduced by up to $300—and you can still claim the standard deduction.
