800 Strong in Madison (May 29 2015)

posted Apr 30, 2015, 11:14 AM by Sophia Webmaster

Just a few minutes ago, Hannah Rosenthal of Milwaukee Jewish Federation framed our day of advocating for social justice, Rev. Everett Mitchell of Christ the Solid Rock Baptist Church in Madison spoke powerfully about the need to fix our criminal justice system, and state Rep. Evan Goyke thanked us for coming today and pledged his support for criminal justice reform. We'll try to see the other 131 of them later today!

Wisconsin's people of faith have banded together for justice: Jewish Federation of Madison, Interfaith Conference of Greater Milwaukee, Lutheran Office for Public Policy in Wisconsin, Madison Area Urban Ministry, Milwaukee Jewish Federation, Wisconsin Council of Churches, Wisconsin Faith Voices for Justice, and Wisconsin Jewish Conference.

We'll be breaking out to go in depth on the issues next, rallying at the Capitol and then heading to our legislators' offices to get action this afternoon.
