#TeachtheTruthWisconsin Week of Action for Racial Equity
October 9-5, 2022
Around the country, the forces of white supremacy and racism are confronting school boards, demanding they prevent teaching the true history of racism, slavery, sexism, and violence against marginalized communities that is part of the founding of our country.
As people of faith, we believe it is the responsibility of each person to do their part to address the systemic inequities and injustices in our society and to create a world where every human being can live a life of dignity and respect. Our children need to be prepared to take on their share of this task when they grow up. Yet, without knowing the true history of how our nation came to be, they cannot understand the underlying causes of the issues we face, and therefore, will be ill-equipped to meet the challenges they will confront as adults.
Please join us once again for a Week of Action for Racial Equity, October 9-15th, as we lift up stories of Wisconsin history at significant sites of racial justice around the state.
