moving from charity to justice
We connect and empower faith communities and individuals to work for the common good and a life of dignity for everyone. We advocate for change so that all individuals and families can thrive socially, prosper economically, and participate fully in civil society. We intentionally build bridges across faith communities and draw on the collective wisdom, courage, and strength of our various faith traditions.
our goal is to create a wisconsin that no longer needs us.
we are live on facebook now!
Be part of this work to advocate for policies and programs that address poverty, hunger, homelessness, and racial and economic injustice.
