Greater Milwaukee 60 Day Organizing Cooperative Drive

(UPDATE: We've done it! We've found over 200 member-owners in under 60 days! But it is not too late to join in!)

After years of damaging attacks on our state, one thing is clear: what we're doing is not working.

We must develop and support new, bold ideas if we are to change the direction of our state.  

Our new idea is simple: Launch a member-owned Organizing Cooperative and hire a Professional Organizer that you direct that will work to unify and strengthen the influence of existing progressive individuals and groups in the greater Milwaukee area, and to recruit and train more individuals to get involved.  If this works in the Milwaukee area, we will work to expand this model across the state, creating a statewide network of progressive groups and individuals.  

But in order to make a member-funded co-op organizer position possible, we must find 200+ people in the Greater Milwaukee area to pledge to pay small monthly dues to fund this organizer position.  Without you, this idea cannot happen.

This is your Organizing Cooperative, you own it. What do you want to change in Wisconsin and/or your community?

    A well organized city wide drive for Voter Registration and Voter ID in Milwaukee's lower income Neighborhoods might be appropiate for this type of organizing. But! I'm seeing the immediate an desperate need for an awakening and mobilizing of opposition to Fast Track , the TTP and in favor of a movement to adopt the "We the People Amendment" to the U.S. Constitution that states both Corporations are not People and money is not speech.

    Getting more African Americans and low income people registered to vote and actually voting--of course for elected officials who will act on their behalf.
