After years of damaging attacks on our state, one thing is clear: We must develop and support new, bold ideas if we are to change the direction of our state.
Our idea is simple: Grow our member-owned Organizing Cooperative to fund a professional organizer who will work full time, year round to coordinate a grass-roots campaign to challenge the most toxic influence on state politics and Wisconsin elections: Conservative Talk Radio.
Every day in Southeastern Wisconsin, five right-wing radio hosts spew divisive rhetoric on our most powerful AM stations. Our mission is to break the ultra-conservative media monopoly and restore a true marketplace of ideas on our public airwaves, and we call our campaign "Radio-Active."
Radio-Active cannot happen without YOU. In order to make this member-funded Co-op campaign possible, we must find 250 people in the region to pledge small monthly contributions averaging $20/month to "own" this campaign. If we don't find 250+ people who believe in this idea and pledge, we won't go through with our Radio-Active campaign. But if we do, together we will change the media landscape in Milwaukee and restore a diversity of views on our airwaves.
This is YOUR Organizing Cooperative. You own it. You direct it. Our member-owned Milwaukee Co-op launched this campaign to change politics as usual. Pledge today and let us know: What do you want to change in Wisconsin and in your community?
