This project is turning written testimonies into inspiring videos that bring the sharable power of story, music, and images to our call for a just budget. Send your written testimonies to Marykbaum@gmail.com

 

Virtual Town Hall Meetings:

*** In the weeks following the Just Budget Unity Tour, there will be regular Virtual Town Hall Meetings until the budget passes. Each “Town Hall” will spotlight different issues and geographical areas of the state. Area residents will help select the justice issues of focus and help host these meetings. If you or your group would like to help organize, plan, and/or play a part in these virtual gatherings, please call Tim at 608-630-3633.


A banner is being made for the middle so that the side of the "UnityMobile" will say:

WI NEEDS A JUST BUDGET
