Ensuring Education Equality in Wisconsin: Responding to Discrimination in Voucher Schools

Today, we wish to address a critical issue brought to light by a recent article in Wisconsin Watch, titled "Wisconsin Voucher Schools: Discrimination Against LGBTQ+ and Students with Disabilities". As a party that proudly upholds social justice, we cannot remain silent in the face of these disturbing revelations.

Remembering Brown v. Board of Education: Confronting Residential Segregation in Wisconsin

Today, as we commemorate the 69th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education, we are reminded of our nation's ongoing struggle for racial equity. In 1954, this landmark case led the Supreme Court to declare that "separate educational facilities are inherently unequal," thereby making racial segregation in public schools unconstitutional. Despite this significant step forward, our struggle for true equality continues, with systemic inequalities still deeply rooted in our society, particularly in housing. Continue reading

As we address the current housing crisis in our country, we can draw inspiration from this precedent and fight for the same decisive government action to ensure that "Housing is a Human Right."
