Join us for State Bridges Virtual Event with Citizen Action of Wisconsin.

Join us for this State Bridges virtual event hosted by our friends at Sister District Greater Chicago and Sister District Portland on Wednesday, March 30 at 7 PM CST. 

About This Event:

We know that the electoral gains we work so hard to achieve are possible in no small part because of the year-round efforts of local grassroots operations, often led by people of color, that center the voices of those most impacted by state policies.

This State Bridges event allows us to support two progressive organizations doing year-round power building in Wisconsin: Citizen Action and WISDOM!

Members of the North Central Organizing Co-op Lobby in Support of the BadgerCare Public Option Bill (LRB 5510)

On Friday, March 4th, NC Co-op member Lon Newman, lobbied Sen. Janet Bewley to ask her to support, or even co-sponsor LRB 5510, otherwise known as the BadgerCare Public Option bill. Wisconsin Public Radio (WPR) reported, “According to a Legislative Reference Bureau analysis of the bill, the state Department of Health Services would be required to ask for federal approval for certain individuals over BadgerCare’s income limit to be able to purchase coverage through the program. The bill would also create a state health insurance exchange in place of the federal platform. The bill would also expand Medicaid coverage under the terms of the federal Affordable Care Act, or ACA, for people with an income at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty line. It would additionally allow businesses of 50 or fewer employees to be able to purchase coverage.”

Listen to “The Conspiracy Against Everything” Battleground Wisconsin Podcast

From the conservative leaning WI Supreme Court making up the new “least changes” redistricting criterion to the Republican attempt to funnel public dollars to private schools, it seems the Sith Lords of the WI GOP are embarrassing the dark side…again! We delve into the new political maps for Wisconsin and give some political insider perspective of the new districts pros and cons. Our eye-rolling won’t stop with the newly released “Gablegate” records showing Gableman’s massive spending of public money on himself, while continuing to drive his big-lie partisan election review into the toilet. And the hits keep rolling as we call out RoJo’s past pro-Putin support and how he continues to show his unworthiness to be in office (don’t forget to Vote Nov 8th!). Speaking of terrible leadership…did you hear about the one where a bunch of white people who don’t live in Milwaukee want to dismantle the multi-racial Milwaukee School district? Join us as we try to find the punchline.
