This letter was written to support a brief filed by Wisconsin Faith Voices for Justice in support of Wisconsin Governor Evers' Safer at Home order, to counter a lawsuit claiming that one of the harms of the Safer at Home order is “decreased access to community and religious support.”
Stay safe - we will get through this together!
Our Meeting has a special connection with the Friends International Bilingual Center (FIBC), Bolivia. Director Emma Condori Mamani has visited with us and presented about their efforts to help educate and develop programs in their community. We wish them well during these turbulent times.
Madison Wisconsin is situated on the ancestral lands of the Ho-Chunk (Winnebago) People. The Ho-Chunk describe themselves as the Hochungra, which translates to “People of the Sacred Language.” The chronicle of displacement and seizing of Ho-Chunk land by the U.S. and Wisconsin governments is long, complex and tragic. Correspondingly, their history of persistence and survival is extraordinary. To learn more about the Ho-Chunk, the book “Indigenous Nations of Wisconsin” by Patty Loew is a good resource.
Registration is now open for the NYM Annual Session May 24-27, 2019 at the Wisconsin Lions Camp in Rosholt, Wisconsin.
Early Registration April 1-14
