Please call Governor Walker and demand a VETO of AB 297, the race-based mascot support bill - (608) 266-1212
In a sad erosion of racial justice legislation that WNPJ member groups worked hard to pass, this week the state Senate passed a bill that makes it much harder to force school districts to change race-based logos and mascots, seen as derogatory to Native Americans. All 11 of the state's tribes opposed the bill. Gov. Walker has yet to say whether he will sign or veto the bill.
A bill that would block public access to the land in the Penokee Hills where Gogebic Taconite wants to build an open-pit iron mine was passed by the state Senate last week and is expected to move through the Assembly soon (Call your Representative now!). Introduced in August, SB 278 has been roundly condemned by environmentalists, Native Americans, hunters, and tax fairness advocates as another giveaway to G-Tac by their bought-and-paid-for elected officials.

Action Alert 4: Statewide day against weaponized drones
The Wisconsin Senate will take up the Schultz Senate Substitute Amendment to AB297/SB317 on Tuesday November 5. We need a large presence in the Senate Gallery that day. The Senate session starts at Noon. Please join us at the West Entrance of the Capitol (State Street) at 11:30 am for prayer and some words of encouragement. We will then proceed to the Gallery by Noon.
Action until then is to contact all Republican Senators and ask them to vote for the Schultz/Miller Substitute Amendment of AB297/SB317 and oppose the version of AB297/SB317 passed by the Assembly.
