2:00 - 4:00 pm

First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee

1342 N Astor St, Milwaukee

A wide variety of Wisconsin justice leaders will explore ways we can build a unified movement throughout Wisconsin. At this meeting we will enjoy an opening story from Dr. Shannon Sloan-Spice, co-founder of Water Protectors of Milwaukee and Holding Space, a collective of artists and healers. Since the age of 16, she has traveled with Ojibwe and Lakota medicine teachers who helped her learn that storytelling is her medicine. We will also hear from spoken word artist, Christopher Sims, a lay-minister of Love and Justice and a “Black Lives Matter!” activist. He writes and performs poetry for our collective liberation and ecological sanity. We will get a chance to share our work and explore ways that we can collaborate.
