Action Alert from WISDOM: "I Care About People in Prison. Does Governor Evers Care?"

We have a serious crisis - COVID-19.  I am grateful that Governor Evers has shown leadership in guiding our state through the pandemic, recognizing that amid alarming infection rates, overcrowded intensive care units, and rising death tolls, we can't just go about business as usual.  It is sad that the state legislature's leaders have chosen not to even try to help.

The War at Home - Oscar Nominated documentary - now streaming!

Spread the news about the Oscar Nominated documentary, The War at Home*.  In the 1960s, we took to the streets to stop the Vietnam war.  Civil Rights & Antiwar activists built mass movements that changed America. We did it before and now we must do it again.

Wisconsin is in need of people to serve as paid poll workers for the Nov. 3 election.

If you're looking for a way to make an impact this election year, becoming a poll worker is one of the most vital roles you can play. Being a poll worker means helping people vote safely and ensuring as many people as possible can cast their ballot. Together, we will help the voices of our community be heard!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many veteran poll workers have to sit this one out, so we need younger citizens to step up! This is a great opportunity for high school and college students to get involved with the democratic process.

COVID19 Mutual Aid Support, Offers and Resources

UPDATED OFTEN:  Times that are potentially scary require us to better support one another. In the same way that we bring casseroles to grieving families and baby clothes to celebrate newborns, we can come together as a community to help each other through this difficult time as well. An essential part of stopping the spread of coronavirus from overwhelming our hospital systems is voluntary self-isolation. However, isolation can be difficult without the support of your neighbors. This information will help us provide support to each other!

Our democracy is imperiled by the growing influence of money in politics, greatly compounded by voter suppression and partisan gerrymandering. For our democracy to work, it is essential for citizens to be registered, engaged, know that their vote counts, and have the information they need to vote and make informed decisions.
