What is Joint Resolution 9?
The full text of the resolution is available below, but here are the four resolutions in their entirety. This should be something that everyone in the country, not just Wisconsin, can proudly support:

  1. Condemns Islamophobia and all hateful speech and violent action directed at Muslims, those perceived to be Muslims, immigrants, and people of color.
  2. Categorically rejects political tactics that use fear to manipulate voters or to gain power or influence.
  3. Commits to pursuing a policy agenda that affirms civil and human rights and ensures that those targeted on the basis of race, religion, or immigration status can turn to their government without fear of recrimination.
  4. Reaffirms the value of a pluralistic society, the beauty of a culture composed of multiple cultures, and the inalienable right of every person to live and practice his or her faith without fear.

Speaking out against Russian atrocities towards gay men

“WE ARE MANY– United Against Hate” speaks out against the recent arrests and detention of more than 100 gay men in Chechnya.

We stand together in opposition to actions of the authorities there, who have reportedly murdered at least three gay men and detained and tortured dozens more in recent weeks. We call upon Secretary of State Tillerson to use this current trip to Russia as an opportunity to call publicly upon the Russian and Chechnyan governments to do all in their power to stop the atrocities and protect their LGBTQ citizens.
