Contact your member of Congress to cosponsor bills to end the culture and practice of militarism in local policing

Daunte Wright didn’t have to die. That’s what I keep thinking, and you may be thinking that, too. He shouldn’t have died. This young man should still be alive to watch his son, Daunte Jr., grow up.

ACTION ALERTS from Building Unity - working toward a Just Budget in Wisconsin

Sign On! Support Sustainable Ag and a Real Climate Solutions: Oppose Growing Climate Solutions Act

Contact Congress to Pay Our Dues to the UN

UNA-USA - Did you hear the news? President Biden just released his initial budget request. While we remain optimistic about this administration’s efforts to #GetUSBack, there are still challenges ahead of us.

Reduce Pentagon Spending!

Veterans For Peace is outraged that President Biden’s budget released this week INCREASES Pentagon spending. This is unacceptable. It is far past time for the U.S. budget to reduce a over-inflated Pentagon spending . This budget does not reflect the overwhelming majority of public opinion that supports re-prioritizing military spending towards programs that benefit regular people and their families.

Over 44 million Americans carry more than $1.7 trillion of student debt – preventing people from buying homes, starting businesses, saving for retirement, or even starting families. And no one is as burdened by student loan debt as Black people, Black women in particular. This is a direct result of systemic racism.

This year saw one of the most horrific environmental disasters in Wisconsin history: a wolf slaughter during the height of breeding season, at the behest of an out-of-state hunting group, with the blessing of the Wisconsin Natural Resources Board.

Wisconsin Drops Environmental Testing for 3 PFAS found in Firefighting Foams

Environmental testing by the Wisconsin DNR detected three PFAS chemicals (10:2 FTS, PFHxDA and PFODA) in firefighting foam and soil at the huge ATC Transformer Fire in Madison in 2019. In a surprising move this week, the WDNR announced that it will be dropping these same three chemicals to match EPA’s less stringent testing protocols.
