Bridge-Building

This event has been canceled. 

Keep an out for our More Appropriate for Winter event, where we hope to have some fun as we build a solid team of trained volunteers.

SPEND A DAY GETTING TO KNOW V0TERS – AND BRING A FRIEND!

Help make 2018 the year Wisconsin turns the tide of right-wing election wins!

On Saturday, February 24, Grassroots North Shore will train people in BRIDGE BUILDING VOTER OUTREACH. Learn how to talk to voters and – more importantly – learn how to listen to them. We’ll get some training, we’ll get comfortable by role playing, we’ll get into the field to talk to voters, and we’ll close with social debriefing time. If you can, bring a friend. We use the buddy system in our walks/drives, and the more folks we train the more buddies we get out into the community.

This training will help you in any neighborhood. In this session, we will focus on three Wisconsin Assembly districts: 23, 24, and 60, and will walk/drive neighborhoods in Ozaukee County.

After you are trained, we hope you will commit to doing more Bridge Building Conversations, either with the friend you brought or with a new friend you meet that day.

SCHEDULE:

9:45        Check in at the Grafton Public Library (coffee and light refreshments provided)

10:00     Introductions and orientation to Bridge Building Conversations

11:30     Light lunch (provided) and practice rounds (role playing)

12:00     Get out in the field and build some bridges with voters (walk/drive lists provided)

2:00        Head to the Water Street Brewery in Grafton for cash bar, light nosh (provided), and debriefing

WE ASK THAT YOU COMMIT TO THE ENTIRE PROCESS, BUT IF YOU NEED TO SIMPLY DROP OFF YOUR WALK LIST RESULTS AT WATER STREET, YOU MAY.

Rescuing Wisconsin

       Listen, Question, Support our Wisconsin Candidates

Who Can Save Wisconsin? How Do We Help Them?

Republican leadership continues to threaten Wisconsin’s air and water, education system, the individual’s civil rights, and even the ability to travel in a safe, convenient transportation system. Citizens wonder how long we can progress on this path, and who will arise to wrest control of state government back from an authoritarian, backward-looking administration.

Five “knights in shining armor,” willing to take the spend the time, money, and effort required to run for office will be at the Grassroots North Shore Candidate Forum on Sunday from 4:30 to 6:15, on March 11th (at North Shore Presbyterian Church in Shorewood).

* Tim Burns or Rebecca Dallet for the Wisconsin Supreme Court

* Andy Lamb, running against Jim Ott, Assembly District 23

* Chris Rahlf, taking on Rob Brooks, Assembly District 60

* Emily Siegrest, challenging Daniel Knodl, Assembly District 24 and

* Josh Kaul, running against Brad Schimel, Attorney General

Although they are signing up to be our standard bearers and representatives in the true sense of the word, they cannot do it without us. We need to show up for them, as we hope they will show up for us. Take this opportunity to support, question, and listen to our candidates.
