In this week’s session, meet some of the powerful women of the FREE Campaign to learn about the issue of Housing for Women Returning from Incarceration. We will have the opportunity to meet some of the powerful women of the FREE campaign, to learn about the issue of Housing for Women Returning from Incarceration, and to learn how we can all help.

Register here. When you do, you will get an email with a link to join us on Saturday.

Leaders from MICAH, EXPO, and WISDOM have worked in recent years to establish the FREE Campaign.  FREE is an initiative specifically of, by and for women who have experienced incarceration.  Recently, FREE got a big boost in the form of a generous grant from the Wheaton Franciscan Sisters, which has allowed them to hire staff specifically for the campaign.

After hundreds of conversations with women who have returned from jails or prisons, FREE has discerned that HOUSING is their top issue of concern.  It is especially important for women who are trying to reunite their families, and who cannot do so without first establishing that they have safe, stable, decent places to live for themselves and their children.

The Summer of Solidarity Series dedicates each Saturday to a different issue that people in the MICAH (Milwaukee Inner-City Congregations Allied for Hope ) and WISDOM networks are working on. Broaden your knowledge about issues you might not be working on yourself. For more information, contact WISDOM
