    Postcard Party (11/21)

    Residents of Ozaukee County: you are needed to help write postcards supporting Fair Maps in Wisconsin.  The Fair Elections Project is providing postcards and Grassroots North Shore is providing stamps for a mailing to go out between Thanksgiving and Dec. 4, 2019. Yes, this is a busy time, but if we all pitch in, we will finish quickly and mail the cards on time. This is a fun and easy way to volunteer and contribute to a vastly better Wisconsin.  Voters choosing their representatives, instead of representatives choosing their voters is one of the most powerful changes we can make to create the great state we envision.

    “The pen is mightier than the sword” from Edward Bulwer Lytton's play Richelieu.

    We will meet at the Grassroots North Shore Office,

    5600 W Brown Deer Road, Suite 116

    Ample parking available behind the building

    An Evening with Celinda Lake

    Celinda-Lake-Square.jpgCelinda Lake, a Washington-based Progressive Strategist and Pollster, is one of the Democratic Party's leading political strategists, serving as tactician and senior advisor to the national party committees, dozens of Democratic incumbents, and challengers at all levels of the electoral process. Through her firm, Lake Research Partners, Ms. Lake helps her clients develop the strategies and disseminate the information that they need to win elections.

    Wisconsin has been identified as key to the 2020 election. Sound bites and photo ops aside, you won't want to miss this rare opportunity to see things from her deeply researched perspective on the 2020 elections!

    Doors will open at 3:00pm. Street parking only.

  • posted about gerrymander signup on Facebook 2017-02-10 14:37:05 -0600
    I signed up to insist that the WI legislature draw new district maps in a nonpartisan way. Join me & other activists.

    Gerrymander Signup

    If we want the court-ordered redistricting process to end partisan gerrymandering in Wisconsin, we will have to orchestrate a public outcry about the secretive and hyper-partisan way district lines were drawn in 2011 (the map the court found to be unconstitutional).

    We will have to insist—loudly and publicly and as often as possible—that the new maps must be drawn in an inclusive and transparent way, with bipartisan and nonpartisan input and with public hearings held in locations around the state so as many citizens as possible can participate and be heard.

    Do your part and sign up to work to end partisan gerrymandering in Wisconsin NOW.

  • commented on Where and When to Vote Early 2016-03-22 17:04:14 -0500
    Debbie Kujawski is absolutely right. The goal of limiting early voting to regular business hours is to suppress voting. But of course the actual excuse was to control costs of staffing offices after hours and on weekends.
