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.
