Judy Goldsmith, Humanity Project
They started in Fond du Lac with eight people three years ago. History hasn’t told the whole story about our history. There are still items such as the slavery abolition, Jim Crowe laws and disadvantages for blacks even after the civil rights laws of 1964. We still have housing discrimination, wage discriminations even in our current era. Prejudice still exists and needs to be broken down for our society to thrive. They meet once a month from September to May. Their meeting is the 1st Wednesday of the month at the Unitarian Church. They will have a kickoff September 13th from 6 – 8:00 at Marian University.
