#Give4Justice on #GivingTuesday

For 45 years Community Shares of Wisconsin has worked to strengthen the social and environmental justice movement in Wisconsin. At its core, this work is about bringing people together to build a community where everyone feels safe, secure, and can thrive. What threatens the safety and security of any member of this community, threatens us all.

No matter your skin color, religion, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, economic status, age, ability, the language you speak, or where you’re from—this community is yours, and that means acknowledging when events may make some members of our community feel like they don’t have a place here.

Now more than ever, we come back to the work of our
member groups and the values of collaboration, shining a light on injustice, and finding strength in our difference. As we look to the future, we will continue to build relationships and expand our coalition to more fully advance the work of different communities, especially communities of color, LGBTQ+ communities, religious communities, and disabled communities.

On Giving Tuesday Community Shares will waive the credit card fees for all online donations made to our member nonprofits through our online giving portal.
100% of all designated gifts to our member nonprofits will be passed on.

Show your support of local nonprofits with your donation today!

- Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not. - Dr. Seuss
If life were a thing money could buy, the rich would live and poor would die. - Widespread Panic (Arleen)
- Change means movement.  Movement means friction.  Only in the frictionless vacuum of a nonexistent abstract world can movement or change occur without that abrasive friction of conflict - Saul Alinsky
- We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both. -  Louis D. Brandeis 
- We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed. Frankly, I have yet to engage in a direct action campaign that was "well timed" in the view of those who have not suffered unduly from the disease of segregation. For years now I have heard the word "Wait!" It rings in the ear of every Negro with piercing familiarity. This "Wait" has almost always meant "Never." We must come to see, with one of our distinguished jurists, that "justice too long delayed is justice denied." - Letter from a Birmingham Jail, Dr. Martin Luther King.
