3:00 at Philosopher stones. Join us for food, community building, resisting displacement, and an end to the state violence against Black homeless people.
The Mayor and Chief Koval have made a final decision to remove the philosopher stones at the park on the top of state street and have started doing it on Monday the 10th. This has been a spot where Black homeless people and low income people gather and build community due to having no other place to go. A similar group of Black homeless people have been moved and criminalized for many years from Brittingham Park, to Peace Park, to concrete park to Philosopher stones park. Kicking people out of public space is not the answer, we need a day resource center, a wet shelter, better mental health services, better case management, better night shelter services, more affordable housing with supportive services, an end to over policing and criminalizing this group of people. There are some good steps being made in the city and county towards these ends. Black homeless people are at the root of the racial disparities in poverty, policing, and mass incarceration. This is an issue for all of us to be engaged on.
Social Good Summit
Entrepreneurship at its best incorporates the business of improving the world we live in -- caring, sharing, building community, and unleashing new creative economies. Join us for a daylong summit to collectively redefine entrepreneurship in terms that reconsider the value of social good in all the work that we do. Through a moderated panel discussion, participant engagement activities, and networking opportunities, we will, together, build a larger kind of entrepreneurship worthy of Wisconsin – one where prosperity benefits everyone, without exception.

Wisconsin State Capital
Dr. Martin Luther King Street Entrance
The state is proposing to add $5 million to increase Wisconsin's prison population. The fight against the prison industrial complex continues, as we will continue to fight to build the people and not the jail. Join YGB to stand in solidarity with CUSH-Congregations United to Serve Humanity and other people of faith against the proposed resolution.
Our state has waged a war against black people and doubles down on many oppressive policies. Time to continue the fight.
