WAUSAU Thurs Feb 1, 8:30 – 2 pm Panel on Housing Justice and Congregational Futures. At St Michael’s Parish, 611 Stark St. The way we gather is in a season of transition. Many faith communities have large buildings that were used in an era when congregations were larger and had busier schedules with events happening throughout the week. Some believe they may conclude ministry in that place in the next 5-10 years. It is time for us to re-examine our buildings and ask how they can continue to serve our communities. One widespread community need across Wisconsin is safe, affordable housing. We have begun to imagine what it would look like if faith communities used our assets such as buildings, people, and faith that calls us to love our neighbor to advocate for housing justice in our cities? Faith communities in north central Wisconsin are invited to join together to share, listen, and dream about how they could have an impact on their communities through housing justice - Register here for free – Sponsored by: Wisconsin Council of Churches, Wisconsin Faith Voices for Justice, NAOMI, WISDOM, and WISCAP.


MADISON Thurs Feb 1, 6 – 8 pm End the Lockdowns and Justice Reinvestment Community Forum. At First Unitarian Society of Madison at 900 University Bay Avenue. Join us to meet Madison elected officials, learn about WISDOM’s End The Lockdowns Campaign and provide input on transformational justice priorities in Wisconsin. This event follows a successful event in Milwaukee on December 20 with elected officials. WISDOM’s End The Lockdowns Campaign seeks to raise awareness on the detrimental effects of lockdowns to people who are incarcerated in Wisconsin’s prisons and their loved ones, urging Governor Tony Evers to use his authority to take action. It aims to close prisons, reduce the prison population and reinvest spending into community resources that decrease crime and strengthen communities. Currently, we are awaiting response from Madison legislators on who are able to attend.  Register in advance at this link.

 Broadcast will be live streamed on WISDOM, MOSES and EXPO’s Facebook pages. For inquiries about the event, you can email WISDOM Transformational Justice Campaign Coordinator Mark Rice at
