Issue Campaign



In August of 2018 we launched an investigation into possible racial profiling practices by Waukesha Sheriff Department because of the disturbing treatment of Pastors Williams and Patterson as they waited for their roadside assistance to arrive. After getting the runaround from the Sheriff about their concerns, the pastors filed a lawsuit. Common Ground continues to gather stories of encounters with suburban law enforcement so we can challenge and stop the culture of harassing and terrorizing black and brown people in our region.
