|Do you believe that Martin Luther King Jr’s dream has yet to be fulfilled?
Have you been inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement across the U.S.?
Do you want to do more in your own community to address racial injustice?
The Wisconsin Network for Peace and Justice (WNPJ) invites you to get involved in ongoing efforts across the state! For over 25 years WNPJ has been challenging systemic discrimination, and we now seek your help in the latest struggle for racial justice in our state and around the country. How can WNPJ help your local organizing work?
