Coming Monday, September 25th to Ascension!

Milwaukee 53206, a  powerful documentary, tells the story of those affected by mass incarceration in America’s most incarcerated ZIP code, 53206, where 62% of adult men have spent time in prison. Through the honest stories of three 53206 residents, we will witness the toll incarceration takes on individuals and families in the community and on the hearts, souls and lives of so many Americans.  Beverly Walker, the wife of one of the incarcerated men will be with us for the Q & A discussion following the screening.  Rev. Mark Thompson, pastor of Breaking the Chains congregation; Rev. Joe Ellwanger and Wendel Hruska, executive director of Project Return will also be part of the panel.   Doors will open at 6 PM.  The film will be shown at 6:30 PM in the Sanctuary.  The event is FREE, thank you to the support of Ascension’s AMIS group, St. Stephen the Martyr Human Concerns, Thrivent and the generosity of individual donors.  Plan now to be with us on Monday, September 25th.
