Kohl’s Corp. (NYSE: KSS) has announced a USD 50,000 commitment to the Milwaukee Film’s Cultures & Communities initiative. The C&C initiative prioritizes diverse cultural perspectives, lived experiences and representations of communities through film, events, conversation and auxiliary presentations.
