MADISON (WKOW) -- Some local clergy members and other community leaders are trying to dissuade protesters from convening Friday.

They met for a virtual press conference Wednesday to talk about a vision for recovery from the impact of COVID-19 that will help people who are out of work.

"The way to help is not to put us all in danger with ill-considered protests, but for all of us to urge the Republican leadership to drop their request to SCOWIS to block the governor's order, but rather to bring the legislature back to work to pass a relief bill to help those that will need it most," said Rabbi Bonnie Margulis, the executive director of the Wisconsin Faith Voices for Justice.

Margulis added, it's imperative to stay home, not only for your friends and families' health, but also for first responders who risk their lives to treat patients on a daily basis.
