MADISON, WI - The Wisconsin Women’s Network (WWN) announced the launch of the Accelerated Policy Institute to meet the large demand of women throughout Wisconsin who are interested in expanding their advocacy skills.

The Accelerated Policy Institute is designed for women of all experience levels and aims to grow the number of women who have the confidence, skills, and strategic know-how to successfully engage in their local and statewide communities on policy issues that matter to Wisconsin women and girls.

Women from all sectors, including those affiliated with nonprofit organizations, academia, philanthropy, labor unions, and government are encouraged to sign up. The Accelerated Policy Institute is also great for college and graduate students, retirees, and women interested in infusing their volunteer activities with effective advocacy skills.

The Accelerated Policy Institute will provide hands-on intersectional policy advocacy, leadership, and communications training in a condensed two-day format. The Accelerated Policy Institute does not replace WWN’s Policy Institute, which will remain a selective program consisting of four intensive training retreats over a four month period. The next full-length Policy Institute will be announced in July 2018.

The Wisconsin Women’s Network is an organization that promotes the advancement of women and girls in Wisconsin through communication, education, advocacy, and connections. Learn more at: www.wiwomensnetwork.org/.

counties-for-fair-mapsWisconsin county boards representing 64% of Wisconsin residents have formally asked the state to end gerrymandering. It’s time for the Chairs of the State Senate and Assembly elections committees to hold public hearings.


MADISON - In January, the 37th Wisconsin county passed a Fair Maps resolution! That means MORE THAN HALF of all Wisconsin county boards—representing 64% of Wisconsin residents—that have formally asked the state to end gerrymandering and adopt a nonpartisan process for drawing the state’s voting district maps.

It’s high time for the Chairs of the State Senate and Assembly elections committees to hold public hearings on two bills that would have a nonpartisan legislative agency draw district maps – so legislators won’t be able to “choose their voters” through gerrymandering!

Contact State Senator Devin LeMahieu and Assembly Representative Kathy Bernier and demand a public hearing for SB13 and AB44 before the current legislative session adjourns. Time is running out!
