Wisconsin Network for Peace & Justice

On Sunday, November 13th from 1-4 pm WNPJ will host its annual Fall Assembly in Milwaukee (and via zoom). Each year we take this time to bring individuals and organizations together, to set the vision for the upcoming year, to honor the effort of peacemakers and peace builders…and to get into some “Good Trouble”.

We’ll be at Marquette University, hosted by MU Peacemaking Center – a WNPJ member group! Location: Emory Clark Hall, Rm 111, 530 N. 16th St. Milwaukee

We will be presenting the Peacemaker of the Year Award to Claude Motley. Learn more about Milwaukee’s Claude Motley and the Emmy award-winning documentary, “When Claude Got shot”

WNPJ’s 2022 Lifetime Achievement Award goes to Art Heitzer. Art’s active with Peace Action Wisconsin, Milwaukee’s End the Wars Committee, Wisconsin Coalitionto Normalize Relations with Cuba,the National Lawyers Guild, and the Milwaukee Turners.

Art Heitzer receives this Award for his lifetime of peacemaker work since his student activism at Marquette University through his very important and prominent role in our Milwaukee and Wisconsin Peace Community.

Inspired by the work of many of today’s Abolitionists, it is our hope to share their work and to uplift the narrative.

To help us begin to build a shared understanding of abolition, here is an interview with Derecka Purnell and Trevor Noah on her book Becoming Abolitionists and her understanding and the need for abolition today.
