Join the Western WI Organizing Cooperative

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 Western Wisconsin area, and to recruit and train more individuals to get involved.  This Organizing Cooperative model has already worked in Greater Milwaukee, and now 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 region 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. You direct it. What do you want to change in Wisconsin and/or your community?

For more information, check out our Organizing Cooperative Frequently Asked Questions page (opens in a new page) Contributions made can be tax deductible, on the next page after filling out info below look for the "tax deductible" link.

    Climate change/building support for revenue-neutral carbon fee & dividend is my top concern. I am also, more generally, interested in the Resilient Communities movement: http://www.resilience.org/communities

    I am very concerned about the many measures being attempted by our state legislature to take away local control over issues that directly impact us; for example, the recent attempt to pass a water privatization bill and limit local communities' ability to oppose it in their communities. I would love to see us get involved in the community rights movement.

    Maintaining local control in the face of removal of local control by the legislature; lifting the cap off of the public schools, the counties, and the municipalities.
