ESTHER's 2010 Individual Membership Drive

ESTHER is about people of faith coming together to act powerfully to live out our deepest values and to bring a greater sense of fairness, diversity, and commitment to the common good in the greater Fox Valley and throughout Wisconsin.

In a short time, ESTHER has already had an impact on the Fox Valley. ESTHER has held community forums on a variety of issues that affect our region. ESTHER has trained dozens of grass-roots leaders. ESTHER has established itself as an organization that can bring people together and that can act effectively to improve our communities.

Together with other WISDOM faith communities across Wisconsin, we have won Treatment Instead of Prison for non-violent people with drug problems. We have fought for affordable and accessible health care for all, and we have defended the rights of immigrants.

Now, ESTHER looks to you to become a Member. Our goal, to bring compassion and fairness to the Fox Valley and Wisconsin, is not an easy one. As you know, ESTHER is committed to justice work for the long haul – and we need our members to come together to make sure we have the resources to meet our commitment.

Why Does ESTHER Need Members?

ESTHER’s voice is needed today more than ever. ESTHER’s voice must be heard in City Hall, at the County Courthouse, in Madison, and on our streets. The voice of compassion and fairness must ring out. Wisconsin needs to hear that people of faith care about racial and economic justice, that ESTHER will empower our children, our elderly, and those who are in need in our communities.
