From our Newsroom…
Each year for the past 24 years, Wisconsin Family Council (WFC), the educational arm of Wisconsin Family Action (WFA), has displayed a Merry Christmas sign in the State Capitol Rotunda. The sign not only wishes everyone a Merry Christmas, but reminds viewers of the real reason for the season—Jesus Christ, mankind’s Savior.
On Monday, December 1, Wisconsin Family Council once again put up the sign in the capitol, while Wisconsin Family Action placed an accompanying nativity display.
“Thousands of visitors come to our beautiful state capitol during the holiday season to enjoy the gorgeous state Christmas tree with all the handmade ornaments. We are honored to be able to exercise our religious freedom and have our display in the rotunda as a silent but powerful witness to the truth of Christmas and to offer hope to all those who see it,” remarks Julaine Appling, president of WFA and WFC.
This week, $19,000 raised from the sale of “Choose Life” Wisconsin license plates is being distributed to ten Wisconsin pregnancy resource centers ranging from Menominee to Madison to Milwaukee, and to points in between. This is the fourth distribution of funds from the sale of these plates since they went on sale in late October 2017. Recipients of this weeks funds are:
Including this current grant cycle, over $65,000 has been distributed to over 20 different pregnancy care centers that are dedicated to helping women in crisis pregnancies make life-saving choices.
WFA president Julaine Appling states, “We are honored to partner with Pro-Life Wisconsin in overseeing Choose Life Wisconsin. Our organizations cover all the overhead costs for “Choose Life” so that every penny that’s raised from the sale of these plates goes to awesome pregnancy care centers in our state.”
