Afternoon: As part of SNC’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, we’ll be providing two educational/advocacy opportunities.

  • “Make your voice heard” with your local, state, or federal elected officials. Participants will have the opportunity to write letters, send emails, and make phone calls to their elected officials at all levels. Information and opportunities on a variety of issues, including immigration, the environment, and poverty will be on hand as well as contact information for a variety of city, county, state and federal officials. Computers and materials for sending letters and emails will be provided but please do bring your own phone if you’d like to make a call to a representative's office! If you have an interest in particular topic, we’ll find out what we can and give you the support to contact someone and make your voice heard. Stop by and see what interests you.
  • Attend a presentation to learn more about the work of the Fair Housing Center. The Fair Housing Center of Northeast Wisconsin is a civil rights enforcement agency that assists people who feel they were turned down or treated differently in housing because of their: race, color, sex, national origin, religion, disability, family status, marital status, lawful source of income, age, sexual orientation or being a victim of domestic abuse, sexual assault or stalking.

You may choose to participate in as many of these opportunities as your interest and schedule allows.
