Two IWW members will be at Milwaukee Central Library, 814 W. Wisconsin, meeting room 2A, on Monday, March 4, 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.

Uplifting Black Liberation and Black Communities will EQUIP, CONNECT, and EDUCATE Black communities with resources and opportunities that will help provide sustainable environment free from oppressive systems. This begins by using education about potential impact on the community, and how to heal from post-traumatic slave syndrome.
Through OUTREACH and COLLABORATION, UBLAC will help individuals foster understanding about liberation through knowledge and application in order to generate independent living and thinking.

2018 brought us dire warnings from scientists that we need to act NOW to avert the worst impacts of climate change. This means we all need to step it up – and we can do it if we work together!! At this event, you will learn more about actions we all can take to minimize our contributions to the climate crisis. Local groups and activists will be in attendance to offer information, advice, and encouragement.
Join Madison Abortion Defense for a pro-choice rally at the Capitol on March 2nd. The anti-choice group 40 Days for Life’s Madison chapter, Vigil for Life, is gearing up for their next campaign to start on March 6th. For 40 days, anti-choicers will descend on our abortion clinics to disseminate lies, harass our patients, and shutter the doors of our clinics forever.
Madison Abortion Defense formed in October 2018 to defend the local clinic from these anti-choice protesters. We believe that the pro-choice majority needs to fight on multiple fronts–legislation, fundraising, clinic defense–to build a movement to make abortion accessible for all.
Let’s unite the pro-choice majority in Madison to collaborate in building this movement!
When? Saturday, March 2nd, time TBD Where? The Capitol, Forward Statue side
How can my organization get involved? Sponsor the rally, publicize it in your networks, bring your organization’s materials, and speak from the front about the work you do for the right to choose!
Join our meetings! Every Sunday, 3pm at the Central Library.
