Well, I must say it is really nice to have some exciting, positive news to report from Wisconsin. A consortium of Madison area labor and religious organizations is bringing North Carolina's Moral Monday movement to Wisconsin!
As much as I am looking forward to the event scheduled for that evening, I have been told that Rev. Barber and gospel singer extraordinaire Yara Allen are also planning to join the Solidarity Sing Along at the state Capitol at noon that day. Just two days before, the Solidarity Sing Along will have celebrated its third anniversary of singing labor and civil rights songs at the Wisconsin Capitol every weekday from noon to 1 p.m.
Like hundreds of Moral Monday participants, the peaceful singers in Wisconsin have been arrested and ticketed while standing up for labor and civil rights, so we have a lot to talk about.
Here is the full press release:
