Our statement: This is a statement that we were planning to put out to explain why WNPJ would be pulling sponsorship if Thistle performed at the Pipeline Fighters Benefit concert. We were then informed that she removed herself from the lineup out of fear for her own safety from previous threats she had gotten. Yesterday we saw statements from Thistle saying that Z! has forced WNPJ to pull out which is untrue and an example of her furthering transphobia.
On January 19th, the ACLU took its first legal action against the Trump Administration.
Why? Donald J. Trump is poised to become the 45th President of the United States without fully answering questions about his looming conflicts of interest. His ethical and financial conflicts threaten to undermine the public’s confidence in fair government – and even our national security.

Wisconsin Network For Peace and Justice (WNPJ) recognizes and stands in unity with those experiencing and feeling an increased amount of violence and push back in these uncertain times. Given the increased amounts of hate crimes following the election, we expect an increase in personal attacks as well as institutional violence through policy following the inauguration. WNPJ has been an ally and leader of movements to end racism, deportation, war, mass incarceration, and privatization of education.
