Madison Action Day Exceeds Expectations!
About 750 WISDOM members from all parts of Wisconsin made a big impact at the state capitol in Madison on Tuesday!
WISDOM Leaders led reflections on the hard work of “building the Beloved Community,” including the challenges of radical inclusion, costly reconciliation and living for the seventh generation. Speakers called on WISDOM leaders to work to reform ourselves, our own organizations, and the state we live in.
After lunch, Madison Action Day became a blocks-long procession to the Capitol, led by the 14-foot high Jingle Dress Puppet, created by Native people of northwestern Wisconsin, who prays for unity.
A rally on the Capitol steps called for racial equity, and a pledge to continue to lift our voices until every Wisconsinite knows justice. WISDOM leaders then visited the offices of nearly every member of the Wisconsin State Senate and Assembly. Madison Action Day was an amazing display of unity, of shared purpose and of the power of organized people!
