Thanks to the many, many of you who made Wednesday
a great day in Madison. I talked with several people who came from
outside to be with us (including the various groups making
documentaries), and with several first-timers from WISDOM groups. Every
one of them was struck by the energy, the diversity, and the passionate
commitment of our people.
and happy about our Madison Action Day! Over 800 people met, prayed,
marched, and spent the afternoon in the state capital. With our People
of Faith United for Justice partners, we are constituents of 30 of
Wisconsin’s 33 State Senate districts: we visited legislators or staff
members of each of them. We talked about our 11x15 criminal justice
campaign, passing driver’s cards for the undocumented and supporting
transit statewide. You can find the talking points for these issues on
our website, prayforjusticeinwi.org. Keep checking there for photos and more follow-up on the event.

It was a great
day! We need a lot of great days to achieve our goals for social
change in Wisconsin! You can support our efforts by sending a financial
contribution, electronically here, or to our office: WISDOM, 3195 S. Superior Street, Milwaukee, WI 53207.
