Our featured speaker for this year’s Faith-Labor Breakfast is Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes.Â Join us April 26th at Christ Presbyterian ChurchÂ as we explore how, together, we build our state by improving the lives of working people.Â
â€œItâ€™sÂ so muchÂ more than making history, itâ€™s about making a difference.â€
–Â Lt Gov. Mandela Barnes
Our new Lieutenant Governor made history as the youngest Lieutenant Governor in the country — but was also aÂ candidate erasedÂ from multiple sample ballots, pronounced dead by a local TV station, and mistaken for a white man. None of that has deterred him from his focus onÂ making a difference,Â in a state where racial disparities don’t just create barriers for our citizens, but for our entire state’s economy.
The morning will also feature Peter Bakken, Coordinator for Public Policy at the Wisconsin Council of Churches, with issues and actions that flow from social justice tenets of faith communities.
Following the Breakfast, the Workers’ Memorial Commemoration and Press Conference will remember and call attention to the importance of training and safe work practices, and the real dangers on the job every day.
