About Wisconsin Faith Voices for Justice
Wisconsin Faith Voices for Justice draws on the wisdom, courage, and strength of our various faith traditions to advance the common good. United as progressive people of faith, we move people and government through education and advocacy to raise the dignity and address the needs of the hungry, poor, and marginalized, to care for the sick, and to lift up all voices. We engage faith communities through our Poverty Simulation; a three-session advocacy workshop - Moving From Charity to Justice; and our Minimum Wage Challenge. We are the backbone organization for the Dignity at Work Coalition which brings together faith organizations, direct service organizations, advocacy organizations, and labor to work together on issues that make for sustainable work that helps us sustain our families. We are the main organizers of the Dane Sanctuary Coalition, and we have an active Interfaith Community Building initiative.
