Join us for Madison Action Day - April 15, 2021
Madison Action Day is an opportunity for WISDOM leaders from across Wisconsin to come together around the values that drive our work -- and to share those values and priorities with our legislators as they work to finalize the 2021-23 state budget.
Please see below for more information and sign up to join us on April 15 so we can keep in touch as the details come together.
Morning - Plenary
All WISDOM affiliate leaders, volunteers, and members are invited to join us on Zoom as we gather to celebrate our values and center ourselves for legislative visits. We'll hear from several leaders throughout the state and will have an opportunity to connect with each other as well.
Afternoon/Evening - Legislative Visits
Each WISDOM affiliate is working to set up visits with legislators who represent their geographic areas. Sign up today and keep an eye out for more information to come soon.
We hope you will join us to make your voice heard and assure that our shared values are included in the 2021-23 state budget!
Thank you to all who participated in our Chili Supper Fundraiser on February 28! We sold over 150 dinners, had a great time putting together the meals in eco-friendly to-go packaging and were happy to see so many of you at curbside pick up!
While you enjoyed Rich's Famous Chili, Pastor Kathy's Vegan Chili, and all the home baked treats, you also helped us raise funding so that we can continue to bring our mission to Kenosha County.
It's good to be here! My name is Lori Hawkins and I'm the new CUSH Community Organizer. I'm looking forward to helping further the mission of CUSH to benefit the Kenosha community. CUSH works to address the issues of injustice and oppression that are brought forth by voices within our community. Action leading to positive change is what we are called to do together through our interfaith coalition. There are many ways to get involved in our efforts, whether as a volunteer, a mentor or a donor.
Please reach out and introduce yourself as either a longtime CUSH participant or as someone who is interested in learning more about our organization. You can reach me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please watch this space for what CUSH will be doing in the upcoming new year and how you can get involved.
Wishing you a peaceful New Year!
Support Our Brothers and Sisters During This Difficult Time
Immigrant families in Kenosha County are experiencing unprecedented hardship because of Covid 19. However, many of these families are not eligible for the federal and state programs created to provide economic relief. And now many find themselves unable to pay for basic necessities – especially rent and other housing costs.
For this reason, CUSH has created a fund to support our Kenosha immigrant brothers and sisters.*
Help us reach our $10,000 goal.
Please Donate What You Can And a special request for those of you fortunate enough to not need your stimulus check - please
consider donating part or all of it.
All funds received will be held by CUSH specifically for the purpose of supporting immigrant families.
How to make your tax-deductible donation: 1) On-line at (click the donate button above and in the comments, add immigration fundraiser), or 2) send your check payable to CUSH to PO Box 1324, Kenosha, WI 53141
* We are working with the Racine Immigrant Support Initiative to administer our relief efforts. Information about the Racine Immigrant Support Initiative can be found at https://racineimmigrantsupport.com/
