Wisconsin Network for Peace and Justice (WNPJ) has launched a project to engage 3.5% of WI's population in a campaign called the Racial Justice Tipping Point.  We will use grassroots organizing strategies to not only bring people together, but to take the big and smalll steps to make the big shifts that we need in order to make WI a more racially equitable state.  While many organizations within our networks have an explicit focus on racial justice issues such as immigrant rights, Black Lives Matter, American Indian sovereignty and human rights, and Hmong self-determination, we will also be partnering with organizations outside our networks to build the power we need to win real life improvements in people's lives.  A main component of the program is to engage and deepen white people's commitment to this work.

Those who are interested in supporting this latest 21st century version of the historic sanctuary movement should contact the WNPJ office to obtain background materials and learn more about how they can get involved in declaring their own local sanctuary sites and being part of a community rapid response network. Informational meetings and activist trainings for clergy and others are already being organized in the greater Madison area and could easily be replicated in other parts of the Wisconsin. Together, we can ensure that everyone - regardless of religious affiliation, status, identity, or official paperwork - have equal rights to be a vibrant diverse member of our U.S. community.
