Embrace billboard

A billboard promoting the local organizations Embrace for survivors of sexual assault can be seen from the southbound lanes of Hwy. 53, a mile north of Hwy. 70 between Bittersweet and Ojibwe roads. The billboard is on the left, atop the hill.

Defunding of a local advocacy organization for survivors of domestic and sexual abuse is continuing to draw national attention. 

Barron County’s decision to cut $25,000 in funding from Embrace over statements that in-part supported the Black Lives movement has made headlines at major media publications, including the Washington Post, Huffington Post and CNN.
