Let's make poverty a key campaign issue!

WISDOM, along with the Wisconsin Council of Churches, is asking people of faith from throughout Wisconsin to sign on to the “Faithful Citizenship” statement. Together with the Wisconsin Council on Children and Families and the Citizen Action of Wisconsin Education Fund, we are holding gatherings around the state to talk about the depth of the scandal of poverty and about the role of faith communities and faithful individuals in confronting it.

You can read and sign on to our statement here.  It is drawn from the input of more than 150 diverse faith leaders in Wisconsin.  Use the letter in your conversations about the upcoming election. Invite your friends, family and fellow congregants to add their names. They can get a link to do so electronically by emailing faithfulcitizenwi@gmail.com.

We will present these letters and signatures in October to those who wish to be elected in November. Together we can make poverty a key issue of the upcoming election!
