ISSUES

CUSH is an issues-driven organization that is volunteer led.  Current Task Force issues are detailed here, but they will and should change over time. Please contact us if you are interested in getting involved.

ISSUES

Solar Panels

CUSH’s new Solar Panels Task Force was created by a group who is passionate about bringing energy independence to a list of public and privately owned buildings in downtown Kenosha and in the  Kenosha Innovative Neighborhood (KIN) project.  The Solar Panels is currently conducting research and meeting with city officials as they work to bring this issue action to reality.  If you are interested in joining this task force, please contact Pastor Jonathan Barker at  jonathan.w.barker17@gmail.com

Night Shelter

A passion for ensuring that those who are unhoused in inclement weather have a place to stay the night that is warm and dry drove the reformation of a task force with CUSH that deals with homelessness.  This task force is new as of 2021 and is currently communicating with local stakeholder agencies as they explore how CUSH can help fill the gaps in night shelter availability.  Please contact us if you would like to join this task force.

Immigration

The Immigration Task Force was formed to work toward just and fair reform that will allow immigrants a path toward a legal presence in our country and fair treatment and respect for the rights of all immigrants in our community.

Contact Chair Sandy Milligan at samilligan4750@gmail.com for information about the next meeting.

Racial Equity

CUSH’s Racial Equity Task Force is working on two critical issues in Kenosha.  The first is to bring opportunities to our member congregations and the community to explore our own personal bias, racism, privilege, and how addressing these can lead to stronger and more inclusive community spaces.  The second is to lead Kenosha to Take a Faithful Stance for Racial Equity by growing groups that will speak up and stand up for racial equity in our schools and other public agencies.  Please contact us if you would like to join this work.

Transportation

The Transportation Taskforce was formed to help residents, seniors, people with disabilities and those with limited income to live more self-sufficient lives through access to quality transit services.
