De-rail the Jail!

Join us February 12, 6:30pm at the Central Library for a teach-in on mass incarceration here in Wisconsin and nationally.

Led by Families for Justice of Dane County,

Let’s be clear. The Derail noise is about waking up our elected officials about the underlying issues that lead our community to incarcerate far too many people. It’s about derailing mental health crises, derailing racism, derailing poverty and homelessness,  and much more.  These are issues FFJ members can make more noise about.

Hope to see everyone there!

An Event Update From the Wisconsin Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars

WILPF-Madison encourages all those who support anti-war efforts to head out to Volk Field and join No Drones Wisconsin on January 23rd in having their first vigil of the year remembering all of those whose lives have been impacted by drones. Here’s the post from their Facebook page below:

“Join us for our first vigil of the year on Tuesday January 23. It is often very cold for our January vigil, so dress warm.
We must keep vigilant and continue to speak out against killer drones. Our first vigil against drone warfare was at Volk Field on December 1, 2011. We join others at military bases across the country who are doing similar work. As Trump escalates the killing we must not give up.
