Feb. 27, 2021 (Online) Sustainable Saturday Night – Building Unity for a Just Budget

Saturday, Feb. 27 – 6pm – Sustainable Saturday Night – Building Unity for a Just Budget Share on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/457305152119171

Join the largest number of groups ever to work together on the state budget. Help plan what we need to do over the next four months to overcome major racial and economic inequities. Wisconsin was once the leader for progressive income taxes supporting public education and local infrastructure. But since 2010 this state has almost abandoned family farmers, has increased mass incarceration, has refused to accept expanded Medicaid, and has slashed state aid to public schools.  

At this Sustainable Saturday Night, Hon. Judge Everett Mitchell, Pastor of Christ the Solid Rock Baptist Church will moderate a panel of Wisconsin leaders working for an equitable state budget that serves the common good of Wisconsinites:

  • Rabbi Bonnie Margulis, Executive Director of WI Faith Voices for Justice
  • Dr. Peter Bakken, Justice and Witness Coordinator of WI Council of Churches
  • Min. Wendell Harris, President of NAACP WI State Conference of Branches
  • Jon Peacock, Director of WI Budget Project, Research Director of Kids Forward
  • Justice Peche, Oneida Nation Member and Youth Climate Action Team Leader
  • Dr. Robert Kraig, Executive Director of Citizen Action of Wisconsin
  • Mike McCabe, Executive Director of Our Wisconsin Revolution 

After our panelists share their perspectives, participants will get the opportunity to break into small groups to explore ways that we can all take a part in this movement for a just budget.
