“I still seek a Church that is not the least but the most diverse place on the planet. I still dream that the life of Christ can be fully incarnated in the people who bear his name. I want this faith to produce something more redemptive than choosing sides and building silos and pointing fingers. I want it to generate hope and yield goodness and produce mercy in ways that defy description and explanation and denying.” – John Pavlovitz While the city considers what’s “On the Table” in the upcoming community event promoted by the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, author...Read More

On the same day as the worst mаss shооting in modern American history, the GOP still plans to vote on NRA-backed legislation that eases gun restrictions. Mаss shооtings and acts of domestic terrorism are becoming so common in America that it seems like the news media need only recycle headlines and just substitute the current location. U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Connecticut) released a statement on October 2 in response to the shooting in Las Vegas, which left more than 50 people dead and hundreds injured. “My heart goes out to the victims, their families, the first responders, and the...Read More

Hunting Moon Pow Wow is
Hunting Moon Pow Wow is three days of excitement, bringing together a host of Native American cultures for a celebration of singing, drumming and dancing in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Long a part of Native culture, the pow wow is an important social gathering; it’s a chance for Native people to connect with one another, connect with their vibrant history and traditions, and to connect with non-Native people through the power, beauty and pageantry of the event. For over a decade, Hunting Moon Pow Wow has called Milwaukee home. Each year, dancers, drummers and singers gather from across the country to not only socialize, but compete for huge cash prizes—this year totaling over $100,000. Hunting Moon Pow Wow is a celebration not to be missed. Admission is free and open to everyone.

We are fighting for the
We are fighting for the Dream Act, we are close to stopping the anti-immigrant state bill AB190, we are providing direct assistance to families victimized by Trump’s campaign of anti-immigrant terror, and we are doing so much more; but we cannot do this on the scale our community needs without financial support from community members like you.
This year’s keynote speaker is Iván Ceja, the cofounder of Undocumedia, a Los Angeles-based online organizing collaborative led by immigrant youth. Iván is a DACA recipient and a nationaly recognized leader in the immigrant youth movement. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year. It’s also a ton of fun! This year’s gala is a Día de los Muertos-inspired masquerade. Masks are encouraged but not required!
