Action Alert

Write Representative Mark Pocan to bring Medicare for All to a floor vote January 3

Alert from Our Wisconsin Revolution.  A few weeks ago, we asked those of you in Dane County to join our letter campaign urging the Executive Committee of the Dane County Board of Supervisors to pass 2020 RES 295, which recognizes the dire need for a single-payer healthcare system for Dane County, for Wisconsin, and for our nation as a whole. We are ecstatic to report that the public pressure worked -- the Executive Committee vote to bring 2020 RES 295 to a full board vote passed unanimously!

Send Governor Evers a message that he has a moral and professional responsibility to do more to protect those in prison

After months of woefully insufficient government action, the COVID-19 crisis in Wisconsin prisons has spiraled out of control. As of last week, at least 19 incarcerated people have died from the virus, with more than 11,000 individuals, including 2,000 corrections staff, contracting the disease. We must do more to protect those in prison from Covid.

Call Senators to block the sale of weapons to the United Arab Emirates

Take action for human rights and for a saner U.S. foreign policy - this time regarding a troubling $23 billion arms sale to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Make your call today:  As you know, U.S. arms often end up being used for tragic human rights violations. In the face of unspeakable human suffering in war-torn countries like Libya and Yemen, our country is making a profit off of the weapons that perpetuate that suffering. This specific sale includes drones and fighter jets -- the very weapons that are being used against civilians.
