From the Wisconsin Network for Peace & Justice

We say goodbye to two dear friends of the Network who both fought tirelessly for peace and justice. We remember their work in the shape of favorite quotes: Nan Cheney, a founder of the Network, quoted Mother Jones: “Mourn them… and fight like hell for the living,” while Cecil Findley, former WNPJ Treasurer and Vice Chair, used Amos 5:24 as his favorite text: “Let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.”
