Our Annual Celebration is coming up!
Please join us on June 1, 2023 at 7:00pm.
The event will be virtual, via zoom and livestreamed to WFVJ's Facebook page. Please help us celebrate our 11th year of working toward a more just and compassionate Wisconsin for all!
Our keynote speakers are Representative Francesca Hong and Representative Kristina Shelton, who will be speaking about the Economic Bill of Rights which they re-introduced in the Assembly on March 9. WFVJ Executive Director Rabbi Bonnie Margulis was honored to speak at the press conference announcing the bill. Watch the press conference here and read John Nichols' coverage here.
We will also be presenting our annual Voice for Justice Award to Rev. Jerry Hancock, honoring his many years of service in prison ministry, fighting for criminal justice reform and just, compassionate, and humane treatment for people in our jails and prisons.
We will share with you updates on our work over the past year and preview plans for the year to come.
