Wisconsin Network For Peace and Justice (WNPJ) recognizes and stands in unity with those experiencing and feeling an increased amount of violence and push back in these uncertain times. Given the increased amounts of hate crimes following the election, we expect an increase in personal attacks as well as institutional violence through policy following the inauguration. WNPJ has been an ally and leader of movements to end racism, deportation, war, mass incarceration, and privatization of education.

Thanks for the robust crowd at our 25th anniversary Fall Assembly! After a breif business meeting where the new board and the 2017 budget were approved, attendees heard a great panel discussion facilitated by board member Jessica Williams.

All of the panelists have years of experience in their field: Carlos Miranda, Barb Munson, Pat Popple, Bonnie Block and Z! Haukeness.
