Success Story

Spotlight on the WNPJ member group, Moms Demand Action

Moms Demand Action is a grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence. We pass stronger gun laws and work to close the loopholes that jeopardize the safety of our families. We also work in our own communities and with business leaders to encourage a culture of responsible gun ownership. We know that gun violence is preventable, and we’re committed to doing what it takes to keep families safe.

Spotlight on the WNPJ member group - First United Methodist Church - Church and Society Committee

First Church is decidedly a public church. People look to First Church for many reasons and participate in a variety of ways. We encourage participation in our many ministries. Folks come to participate in our Hope’s Home Ministries with those who find themselves hungry or homeless or in need. Others participate in a variety of arts programs. Some find the worship life and community a place of spiritual nurturing and growth. Others seek to support the work we do to be Downtown for Good through financial gifts and encouragement. We embrace all of these as being part of First Church.

Spotlight on the WNPJ member group SOUL of Wisconsin


There are powerful reasons to stop and consider your household electric bill. Wisconsinites spend about 15% of our income on energy which sends about 18 billion dollars out of Wisconsin's economy every year. The cost of our electricity has risen 65% over the last decade. In 2011, 74% of the base-loaded electric power in our region was generated by coal. On average, the electric outlets in our homes are the largest source of harmful emissions in our lives -- about 33% compared to 25% for transportation, 24% for heating and 18% for the products we buy. Wisconsin would never have to add a single fossil fuel power plant or high capacity transmission line if only13% of ratepayers cut their use by 13%.
