The Milwaukee Justice Center is proud of its collaboration with the Milwaukee LGBT Community Center and its name change project for trans and gender non-conforming clients of the Center. We believe in the inherent humanity and dignity of our trans and gender non-conforming neighbors in Milwaukee. We also believe that our participation in the Wisconsin Public Interest Interview Program (WIPIIP), alongside an organization that stands contrary to those beliefs, is wrong.
The MJC will follow the lead of Legal Action of Wisconsin and withdraw from the WIPIIP. We will continue to offer summer fellowship positions and will reach out to students to schedule interviews at alternate days and times. Student involvement is an important part of the MJC services and we excitedly welcome hundreds of student interns and volunteers every year.
We look forward to meeting with the fantastic student applicants and to share more about our mission, our work, and our passions.
