Peace Action of Wisconsin suspended our weekly Stand for Peace these past few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While global attention is focused on fighting the deadly Coronavirus, wars are still raging and dangerous US foreign policy threatens more military conflicts.
How should the peace movement be safely responding at this point?
With some of the restrictions on public gatherings being lifted, some of our members are carefully restarting the Stand for Peace with directives advised by the Milwaukee Health Commissioner. We will take all precautions and if any stay-at-home orders change, we will
suspend the Stand for Peace again.
Stand for Peace participants will obey social distancing guidelines, and we will wear masks. We have chosen corners that have little pedestrian traffic. We are limited to 10 people gathered. If we have reached that limit, some of us will move down to the next corner. Shared
signs and flags will be sanitized after each Stand. Coffee following the stand will resume only
after Covid-19 is no longer a threat. We will obey any orders that change the requirements of gathering. If you have any concerns or immunity issues, please stay at home. Your health is important, and your voice will be needed after this crisis passes.
