Where:

There is a dedicated End Child Poverty website you can access here http://www.endchildpovertywi.org/

The campaign is a product of 3 years of intensive policy discussions and moral reflection at 24 churches and other religious institutions throughout Wisconsin. The lead coalition partners are four statewide organizations: WISDOM, Wisconsin Council of Churches, Kids Forward, and Citizen Action of Wisconsin. Citizen Action's regional organizing co-ops have been actively involved in planning the campaign.

At a series of news events on Thursday, religious leaders and social justice advocates will use the occasion of the holiday season to raise their voices on behalf of committing Wisconsin to ending child poverty and creating a state where every child has the real opportunity to thrive and succeed.
