The Forward Together Wisconsin coalition will Stand Together to Challenge Injustice and Regressive Public Policies during a Moral Week of Action at the Wisconsin State Capitol
Other States Are Holding Similar Campaigns across Nation
Madison, WI –The statewide coalition of religious, social justice and labor organizations, Forward Together Wisconsin, is mobilizing for a Moral Week of Action at the Wisconsin State Capitol from August 21–28 to stand up against the flood of regressive social policies pushed and passed by legislators in the past two years.
Across the nation, coalitions in other states will stand in solidarity with the Moral Week of Action by undertaking similar campaigns at their legislative houses to protest extremist lawmakers who champion laws that devastate the country’s most vulnerable communities.
“The policies and actions undertaken by the Wisconsin state legislature have set the stage for a path of pain and destruction that will be felt by the people of Wisconsin for years to come. Wisconsin, once a national leader in political reform and improving the human condition, has fallen short of the virtues of the Wisconsin Idea,” said Gregory Jones – NAACP Wisconsin State Political Action Chair.
