Are you someone who likes to be up-to-date regarding the social justice issues that face our community?  And, are you someone who likes to do something about issues once you learn about them?

You might be interested in being part of the WISDOM “Lightning Team”.

We are looking for people who are willing to make a phone call within 24 hours to a state legislator or other decision-maker.  We will send you information about matters that come up related to the issues WISDOM and its local organizations are working on.  We’ll give you background and some talking points.  

Most often the Lighting Team will be asked to make phone calls.  Sometimes, hearings are scheduled very quickly in Madison.  We’ll let you know when those are coming up.  If you can make it to testify, it would be great.  If you can’t, we’d let you know who the committee members are and how you can let them know your thoughts.

The Lightning Team will deal with any and all of the issues WISDOM works on.  You might get a request for action related to Transit, or Immigration, or ROC Wisconsin.  Or, for example, you might get a request from our religious leaders to help stand against the proposal to allow for the desecration of Native American burial mounds.

If you are willing to be part of the Lightning Team, please reply to this message.  Just say, “Yes, put me on the Lightning Team!” and give us your name, phone number, preferred e-mail address and, if you know them, the names of your State Senator and State Assembly Representative.

Please consider this important way to ensure that our message gets out – especially when time is of the essence.

Thank you.
