On April 9, 2017, clergy, religious leaders, and people of faith gathered to share stories that affirm the life-changing impact of the Affordable Care Act. Stories were live-tweeted to the White House and will be shared with the Wisconsin Congressional Delegation and the US Department of Health and Human Services. See the video of the event here
We will continue to gather and share stories so please share your story with us!

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.
Read more here about this new movement and find out how to join, plus action steps you can take.
