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.

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?
Grassroots North Shore is a progressive organization supporting candidates and policy proposals that share our values. But because we are a volunteer group that believes in representing the views of our members and supporters, those of us responsible for creating this web site and organizing GRNS events want to know what YOU think are the most important progressive values. So please send your suggestions to
- Equal opportunity in education, housing, transportation, health care, and employment
- Fair and progressive taxes on individuals and corporations
- Ensuring that all citizens can vote without onerous (and spurious) regulation of access to the ballot box
- Ensuring woman’s right to choose and maintain control of her reproductive freedom
Send in your ideas and watch for your collective wisdom to show up on this page soon!
