ONE HOUR: That's all we need.
Give us an hour of your time, and Grassroots North Shore will change the world! Or at least try.
We're asking you to drop by the office any time between 3pm and 6pm to make two calls: one to your state Senate representative and one to your Assembly representative to support the Medicaid expansion in Wisconsin. And while you're here, you can also fill out two postcards, one to each of your representatives, to ask them to support non-partisan redistricting.
Not only will the Medicaid expansion cover about 82,000 additional Wisconsinites with health insurance, it will provide the funds for many other Evers initiatives in the next biennial budget.
The postcards will help make some noise about getting rid of rigged maps! At least 47 counties, including Milwaukee, have passed non-binding resolutions urging the legislature to implement nonpartisan redistricting in 2021, when the electoral maps must be revised.
We will have everything you need: scripts, phone numbers, addresses, postcards and stamps. All we need is you and your cell phone!WHENJune 04, 2019 at 3pmWHEREGrassroots North Shore

Nancy Kaplan posted about gerrymander signup on Facebook 2017-02-10 14:37:05 -0600I signed up to insist that the WI legislature draw new district maps in a nonpartisan way. Join me & other activists.
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.Sign up
Nancy Kaplan commented on Where and When to Vote Early 2016-03-22 17:04:14 -0500Debbie 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.
Nancy Kaplan commented on Even MORE Bogus "Tax Relief" 2013-12-27 12:12:57 -0600The actual data is in: the property taxes on my house INCREASED by 7.5%. Anyone else want to chime in?
