Action Alert

Stop the GOP Re-Rigging of Our WI Maps!

Meet the new gerrymander, same as the old gerrymander.  Yesterday, Speaker Vos and Majority Leader LeMahieu unveiled their new district maps for the state of Wisconsin, and they’re just as bad as they were last time around: joint committee public hearing on the new maps has been scheduled for October 28 at 9 a.m. Plan to attend the hearing as well as the Wisconsin Fair Maps Coalition press conference prior to the hearing at 8:30 a.m. This will most likely be the only public hearing on the bills. Can't be there?  Please contact your state legislators before the hearing on October 28 and tell them to vote against these re-rigged maps. And urge Gov. Evers to veto these bills if they arrive on his desk.

Four state agencies are developing the tool in consultation with other partners and community members.

Sign Up Now and Participate in Vets for Peace "Climate Crisis & Militarism Project"

 

The national office of Veterans for Peace has a mission: to educate and mobilize about the cost of war and militarism as it relates to the Climate Crisis.

Our areas of focus are:

  • The carbon bootprint of the US military, larger than that of many countries. 
  • The wars for oil and other resources – how they support the fossil fuel-based status quo.
  • The unequal burden of both climate crisis and militarism on people of color, the poor, and future generations.
  • The resources spent on militarism and war – redirect to respond to the existential threat of climate crisis.
