Please help spread the word about our 2/27 listening session at the Black Health Coalition to hear from community members living with mental illness and their families who have experienced abuse or neglect at the Milwaukee County Jail. The purpose of the listening session is to help inform our efforts to improve safety and treatment at the jail.

Donate to Sox Rox at our 2/14 Meeting

Sox Rox collects new socks for men, women, and children who are homeless. Here is the link to the Sox Rox Wish List on Amazon. If you order from this list, the items go directly to Jan Wilberg. Otherwise, bringing socks to the MHTF meeting next week would be wonderful as well.

Thanks for your generosity. With all that is going on in the world, socks don’t seem like a very important thing. But they’re really meaningful to the person who needs some.
