A Message from the RUTH President

Dear Friends,

Visiting Madison three times this past year gave our members opportunities to connect with other WISDOM members from around the state working on justice issues of our choice and to talk with our legislators and their staff about our concerns.    Sharing a legislator and a passion for the same issues can create strong relationships among the members of WISDOM groups especially when values are focused on the priorities of faith.   Much can be accomplished working together.  This is possibly the most rewarding aspect of all that we do, working together for justice in the public sector as our faith leads.  Thank you to each and every member of WISDOM who works for justice in his or her own affiliate.  We welcome even the bus trips with time for fellowship and strategizing.  We all need each other.  This brings to mind a poignant prayer from the “Table of Saints” gathering this summer in Milwaukee.
We’re all a part of God’s body
It is God’s will that every need be supplied
You are important to me
I need you to survive !

Thank you for working with us to make our state a place where all people have a chance to succeed.

Nancy Slattery
RUTH president
