Write to President Biden: It’s past time to release Leonard Peltier

This Christmas take a moment to think about Leonard Peltier. Leonard was convicted in 1977 of the murder in 1975 of two FBI agents during a confrontation at the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.

On November 30, the Wisconsin State Supreme Court decided to take a 'least change' approach to deciding the state's legislative districts for the next ten years.  The Court also decided that they would not take partisan gerrymandering into account when deciding what map to adopt.

It is not the pathway to citizenship we hoped for, but temporary protection from deportation and the possibility to obtain work permits. 

By Dec 8, WRITE DNR STAFF AND SUPPORT THE ADOPTION OF NEW PFAS DRINKING WATER STANDARDS!

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has begun to draft rules to establish state PFAS standards for drinking water. Data, scientific evidence and community testimony around PFAS raises the alarm for strong and immediate action on proposed rules for drinking water and surface water standards. Our groundwater, Starkweather Creek, the Yahara chain of lakes and our fish in and around Madison are already contaminated with PFAS thousands of times the anticipated water standard.
