WISDOM Updates‎ > ‎

Don't forget to vote!

posted Nov 1, 2014, 7:38 AM by Sophia Webmaster

WISDOM leaders across the state have been engaged in efforts to make poverty one of the key issues in next week’s election.  We’ve also been working to get out the vote. 


We share this mission with the Nuns on the Bus, an organization of Roman Catholic nuns who are touring the nation, encouraging people to exercise democracy by participating in the electoral process.


WISDOM’s own Sister Barbara Pfarr will be on the bus as it comes through Wisconsin.  Check the schedule and join them at a location near you!
