One of the other issues we work on when we're not pushing this member-owner crowdfunding campaign is to address poverty. We have launched a major campaign along with the state's largest faith-based organizations - Wisconsin Council of Churches and WISDOM - as well as the WI Council of Children and Families to create a powerful, emotional, moral voice to truly address poverty in our state.
A local philanthropist has offered to match any contributions made to help us address poverty in Wisconsin, including this crowdfunding project, IF you let us know that you think this project should seek to challenge our terribly high poverty rate (in addition to other issues). This matched amount will go to our poverty campaign, not the crowdfunding project.
Let us know: do you believe we should seek to address the outrageously high poverty rate?
