We urgently need to address racism in our country, as the daily news so vividly conveys.  For this reason, on Saturday, September 17th, the Sisters of St. Agnes and other groups in Fond du Lac came together on behalf of racial justice in the state of WI. The Wisconsin Network for Peace and Justice led the day-long workshop at Marian University for 101 persons. Challenging! Eye-opening! Energizing! The workshop lays a foundation for further collaborations on racial justice at the local level.
