Phil Haslanger, the pastor of Memorial UCC in Fitchburg, spent an hour sitting alone in our replica solitary confinement cell while it was installed at First Congregational Church last week. He has written compellingly about his experience: http://www.sojo.net/blogs/2015/01/21/what-i-learned-my-time-solitary


Congratulations to NAOMI, our Wausau affiliate organization, who sponsored a dinner to commemorate Martin Luther King, Jr. It was a very well-done event.  Nice turnout, terrific food, and Robert Kraig from Citizen Action did a very good job of talking about the moral imperative for all of us to take responsibility for the scandal of poverty, especially among children.  Fox News did a nice piece on it: http://www.myfoxwausau.com/story/27888327/2015/01/19/martin-luther-king-jr-honored-at-area-celebration


Don’t forget to mark your calendar for our Madison Action Day with People United For Justice:  Wednesday, April 29.
