Wisconsin Council of Churches 2015 Advocacy Day


People of Faith United for Justice

Wednesday, April 29, 2015
9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Bethel Lutheran Church and First United Methodist Church
Near the Capital Square
312 Wisconsin Avenue, Madison

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 a new legislature starts work 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.

1. I was listening to sly and Nicholas discuss Walker's wait to hear from God about weather or not he

should run for President. So I'm hopeful that our religious will have an impact on Walker why he is waiting for his higher calling.

I like this link to tool box for health care for the poor.
