Hosted by Milwaukee IWW

End Prison Torture

Two IWW members will be at Milwaukee Central Library, 814 W. Wisconsin, meeting room 2A, on Monday, October 15, 5:00-6:30 PM. They will be working on some of the activity they regularly do for the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee, supporting the campaign against arbitrary regulations at Columbia Correctional, coalition efforts to shutdown the Milwaukee Secure Detention Facility, and connecting different networks inside prison walls. Our work includes research, writing letters, data entry, and developing ideas for disrupting the horror that is the Wisconsin prison system. Come by if you want to see what’s involved with this organizing, ask questions, and maybe get involved in this. Free coffee and snacks are provided. Let us know if you need a ride to be able to attend. This gathering will be followed by our strategy meeting at 6:30, visitors are welcome to attend this as well.

Racine, October 17, 2018: Poor People’s Campaign Hearing

Hosted by Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival and The Wisconsin Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call For Moral Revival

1123 Center Street, Racine, 6 – 8 :30 P.M.

RSVP today and join the Wisconsin Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival and National Co-Chairs Rev. Drs. Barber and Theoharis as we hold a Poor People’s Hearing in Racine, WI to lift up the voices of the poor, directly impacted, and faith leaders, to demand that our nation’s elected officials take action to fight systemic racism, poverty, the war economy and militarism, ecological devastation, and our nation’s distorted moral narrative of Christian nationalism.

October 17, 2018
6:00 p.m. 
St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church
1123 Center St., Racine, WI 53403

In this electoral season, politicians will be forces to listen to those who have been traditionally left out of the electoral process in this country; they will learn about the power of a new and unsettling force that is organizing across this country, and they will hear our demands!

We will not let another election cycle go by where politicians can run for office without talking out systemic racism, including voter suppression the attacks on immigrant and native communities, and the mass criminalization and incarceration of our communities; without talking about systemic poverty and the necessity of programs of social uplift; without talking about the war economy and ecological devastation that are blighting our people and the places we live; without talking about the distorted moral narrative that ignores the needs of the people.
