A Home-Hosted Coffee Connector | January 18, 2024

Our executive director, Lisa Attonito, attended a coffee connector hosted by Rotarian Pat Algiers in her new “Live, Work, Paint” home studio in Fox Point.

Safe Space and Action | July 26, 2022

In light of the ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court in June, this was a chance to be together, better understand the landscape post Roe, and most importantly, to discuss what actions we can take that have impact in the moment, and for the future. A soft ask of support for the WF Flash Grant program was made, as we have a matching gift challenge generously offered by Annette Jacobson… it is a 2 for 1 match!

Special thanks to Nicole Horvath and Karen Maroda for underwriting the reception. Speakers included:  Michelle Velasquez, Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin and Christine Donahoe, ACLU Wisconsin.
