People of Faith United for Justice is a day-long gathering to learn, discuss, pray and advocate together for social justice issues of importance to all the people of Wisconsin.
As the legislature works on the next state budget, our representatives need to hear our values, priorities, and concerns. Together, we can ensure that our commitment to compassion and justice is reflected in that budget.
Co-sponsors: Wisconsin Council of Churches, Interfaith Conference of Greater Milwaukee, Jewish Community Relations Council of Milwaukee, Jewish Federation of Madison, Lutheran Office for Public Policy in Wisconsin, Madison area Urban Ministry, Wisconsin Council of Churches, Wisconsin Faith Voices for Justice and Wisconsin Jewish Conference.

Action Alert – Support Paid Family Leave!
Send a message to our State Legislature! I support my legislature in passing Wisconsin's Family and Medical Leave Insurance. No one should have to choose between the family they love, and missing a paycheck. It's time to focus on policies that boost families and the community. Please sign 9to5’s petition in support of this important legislation.
If you made minimum wage, you would have $77 to live on this week. Take the Challenge and see how different your life would be! Click to read more...

FAITH LEADERS BUILDING COMMUNITY, STANDING TOGETHER
In the wake of our Faith Leaders Statement and Proposed Proclamation Against Hate, Wisconsin Faith Voices for Justice convened a group of clergy and people of faith to begin to build an interfaith movement against hate in Dane County and around our state. The overarching goal is to foster trust, build relationships, and create a strong interfaith community that will support and assist each other in the challenging times ahead. We are calling this movement Faith Leaders Building Community, Standing Together.
