Joint Finance Committee Public Hearing on the WI State Budget

Posted in

 New location of Joint Finance Committee Hearing - Neenah!

10:00 AM to 6:00 PM
April 13, 2011
Pickard Auditorium, Neenah High School

Speak out for a just state budget! 

We will all be impacted by the proposed state budget.  Those that will sacrifice the most are those that are the most vulnerable in our midst.  The poor and working low-income families, students, seniors, immigrants, and those in need of health care will see dramatic cuts to service.  At a time where we need a focus on jobs to increase the quality of life, we call for our state legislature to consider first the quality of life for the those with the most to lose. 

If you can’t attend, please consider making a written statement (click here) for us to give to the committee.  To read WISDOM's statement on the budget, click here and visit the website Pray for Justice in Wisconsin.

Legislative Action Day Videos Available

Posted in

Crowd walking from church to CapitolThree stirring videos from 2011 Legislative Action Day, held in Madison on March 15, are now available on ESTHER's YouTube channel – rousing talks by Rev. Steve Savides from First Congregational U.C.C., Appleton; Rev. Willie Brisco, president of MICAH, Milwaukee's WISDOM affiliate; and ELCA Bishop Bruce Burnside.

 

More than 400 people, including 35 from ESTHER, participated in the event, which was organized by the Wisconsin Council of Churches, WISDOM, Lutheran Office for Public Policy in Wisconsin, and Madison-area Urban Ministries. We were inspired, we learned, we rallied, we marched, and we visited with legislators to ask that our values as people of faith be respected in the shaping of public policy for our state.
