Madison Action Day 2015

People of Faith United for Justice

Is a day-long gathering to learn, discuss, pray and advocate together for social justice issues of importance to all the people of Wisconsin. As a new legislature starts work on the next state budget, our representatives need to hear our values, priorities, and concerns. Together, we can ensure that our commitment to compassion and justice is reflected in that budget.

Racial Equity is an important part to the work that we do.

Each of the issues will break the Structural Racism that exist in our everyday lives.

BLACK LIVES Matter

Issues: 11x 15, Driver’s Cards, Safety Net, Transportation / Conservation, Education

Revocations

There is an excellent article in Sunday’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (front page) about the issue of Revocations. Here is a link to it:
Jan 18 Milw. Journal Sentinel re. Revocations

​This is a good article to share widely. It is exactly on point with a big emphasis of our 11×15 Campaign. Gina Barton, the author, learned about Hector and Charlotte’s story from our August 20 Action at the Milwaukee Secure Detention Center. They are highlighted in our Blueprint for Ending Mass Incarceration in Wisconsin, which you can find on our website, www.prayforjusticeinwi.org.
