wi-we-need-2023MILWAUKEE - Robert updates the campaign to get legislative co-sponsors for the newly introduced BadgerCare Public Option bill. Priscilla encourages you to call your state legislators and urge them to co-sponsor and wants you to join us every Monday, 5-7pm, making calls to Wisconsin voters and getting them to call their state legislators in support. Attend upcoming media events in Eau Claire on 11/17, 11am, at the Chippewa Valley Free Clinic and in La Crosse on 11/20, 9:30am, at St. Clare Health Mission.

We talk about the significance of UW Health nurses’ union delivering safety violation forms to the state health department and why their organizing fight is critical to reforming the healthcare system, as nurses are the front line defenders of quality patient care. We also celebrate the end of the actors’ strike this week.

We welcome Mark Rice, Wisconsin Transformational Justice Campaign Coordinator at WISDOM, to discuss WISDOM’s organizing and legislative agenda on criminal justice reform in Wisconsin.  Wisconsin continues to trail the nation and surrounding states in lowering our incarceration rates while state facilities are currently experiencing a staffing shortage resulting in inhumane conditions for people in the facilities.

Robert updates the latest on the effort to get a better deal in the Brewers’ effort to get a public subsidy before we debrief the implications from Tuesday’s national election results as we are now one year away from a huge presidential election. We look at the latest polling, including a new MU Law poll that clearly shows the gerrymandered state legislature is very unpopular and vulnerable in the 2024 election. We encourage you to donate to our voter contact effort to win state legislative seats in 2024.
