We’re making our elected officials realize the extent of poverty in Wisconsin and offering concrete ways to address it.  Read the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel story about it.  You can still sign on to our Faithful Citizenship Statement!

Having a family member in jail or prison is a huge risk factor for increased poverty.    The statement is drawn from the input of more than 150 diverse faith leaders in Wisconsin.  You can click above to sign or get a link to sign on electronically by sending a message to faithfulcitizenwi@gmail.com.  Invite your friends, family and fellow congregants to add their names as well. We will present these letters and signatures to newly elected Wisconsin legislators and engage them in conversation on how to end poverty in Wisconsin.  Be part of this important effort!
