Religious leaders have been joining the march against the Wisconsin government. Catholic, Episcopalian, ELCA, and Jewish voices were amongst those who have reached out to their congregations, and the governor, publicly stating their support for the workers.

“Not all religious leaders are strong supporters of unions, but none believe workers rights should be decimated. This is what religion looks like.”
