Cyle Agee, 20, of Milwaukee, held up a sign outside the hotel along West Johnson Street that read “Honk!!! 4 diversity in higher education.”
“We are from a disadvantaged, socio-economic background,” said Agee, a member of PEOPLE, a pipeline program to encourage minorities to enroll at UW-Madison. “We all deserve the same rights as our peers to be educated” (source).
