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!

Moral Monday meets Wisconsin Uprising. This will be a historic event! If you are anywhere near Madison on Thursday, March 13, get yourself to Bethel Lutheran Church to hear inspiring words from Rev. Barber followed by a call-and-response style sing along led by movement historian and musician Yara Allen. Regular followers of the Wisconsin Uprising know that we badgers love to sing, so I expect the rafters to be rattling like they never have before!

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:

I am really excited. Can you tell?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
