Labor Day, Living Wage, and Faith

The Rev. Ellen Rasmussen gave the invocation at the public rally in support of the Madison fast food workers’ strike on behalf of ICWJ, on August 29.  ICWJ staff, member clergy and volunteers joined groups walking workers back to their jobs the following day.    On Sept. 1, the LaCrosse Tribune printed this letter written by Rev. Rasmussen, the chairwoman of the Board of Church & Society, the social justice arm of the Wisconsin annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, and pastor at Wesley United Methodist Church in La Crosse.   (photos below by Carlos Miranda)
