wisconsin_senateMake your voice known, loud and clear, on Speaker Vos's and Majority Leader LeMahieu's upcoming rigging of the maps.


MADISON - It’s not every day that Assembly Speaker Vos and Senate Majority Leader LeMahieu invite our input on a public policy issue.

In fact, it’s never happened before.

It appears that they want cover for their upcoming rigging of the maps.

So here’s how we responded:

Wisconsin Democracy Campaign's Position on Redistricting

Speaking of redistricting, I want to thank you if you participated in the Fair Maps Lobby Day on Monday. More than 200 citizen activists took part!

I’d also like to thank Beverly Speer and Iuscely Flores on our staff for all the work they put into it, and I’d like to thank the phenomenal organizer, Carlene Bechen, of the Fair Elections Project, for all her amazing work pulling this off.

Iuscely Flores also posted an important piece on the rights of the undocumented this week:

Undocumented Essential Workers Deserve a Path to Citizenship

matt-rothschild-2018And I finally weighed in on the ludicrousness of the Assembly trying to censor teachers about the truth of our oppressive history and systems:

Assembly Wrong to Curtail Teaching on Racism and Sexism

Finally, I’d like to draw your attention to one of the most despicable statements anyone’s made in Wisconsin in a long, long time. It’s from Andrew Kloster, an aide to Michael Gableman, who said the far right needs its own “irate hooligans” and “captured DA offices” to let thugs like the Proud Boys off the hook. You can read about that here:

Gableman’s Grotesqueness

I hope you appreciate our offerings this week.

Have a nice weekend!

Best,

Matt Rothschild
