WI, we need to talk . . . .

WI, we need to talk about raising awareness that youth in  Wisconsin are bing sex trafficked or may be at risk of being sex trafficked.  Talking about human trafficking is hard.  It's OK to talk about it.  In fact, we encourage it.

Justice Update -

The board established a focus on anti-racism awareness which includes:

  • anti-racism awareness which includes educating ourselves to see everything through an anti-racist lens.
  • Accompaniment - where women of European decent walk in solidarity with BIPOC (black, indigenous and people of color) in the struggle for racial equity by developing authentic relationships.
  • Advocacy which is living out our Lutheran belief that governments can help advance the common good, focusing specifically on antiracism issues.

What is my role is supporting justice issues?

Your role is whatever you can do, whatever you feel comfortable doing for any issue you are passionate about.  Speaking for the underserved, working with legislatures, volunteering to help at a food shelf, soup kitchen, clothes closet, etc.  All of these are helping with justice issues.  What are you doing to be the change you want to see in the world?
