We are made up of Wisconsin’s residents, religious leaders, organizations, and local communities, coming together across historic lines of division to fight systemic poverty, systemic racism, the war economy, environmental devastation and the false moral narrative of religious nationalism.
We are actively partnered with other organizations including Vecinos Unidos (MKE), EXPO, the Fight for $15, Citizens for a Clean Wausau, labor unions, and more.
There are regional committees in Milwaukee County, Northcentral Wisconsin (Marathon County & Wausau area), Rock County, and Dane County, with more developing all the time.
“We Won’t Be Silent Anymore” is a collection of powerful stories from Wisconsinites directly impacted by injustice. Listen and learn how to share your own story.
