Citizen Action of Wisconsin seeks applicants hungry for the opportunity to lead power building campaigns to achieve the sweeping changes Wisconsin needs to become a just, equitable, and sustainable multiracial democracy.
This position is best suited for creative and effective out-of-the-box thinkers deeply committed not only to being on the right side, but effectively building the grassroots power to make tangible progress on the big challenges confronting the multiracial working class.
12.5% of undecided voters move towards Mandela Barnes after talking to our “deep canvass”
That’s right, we are increasing our rate of movement for undecided voters towards supporting Mandela Barnes. We have been talking to thousands of voters on the phones and their doors. We can’t move everyone, but we are successfully moving enough independent and undecided voters to make a difference in this election! We just need to grow.
We can still increase the impact of our canvass! We need you to support our “deep canvass” now.
These deeper conversations are more effective than more over-priced TV ads.
Volunteer with Citizen Action this Saturday, October 8th!

Listen to “How to win the 2022 Election” Battleground Wisconsin Podcast
We discuss Trump-backed millionaire Tim Michels’ self-dealing flat tax scheme that would further undermine the revenue needed for education, health are, and a climate transition, and force working and middle class folks to pay more while the super rich get yet another tax giveaway. Ron Johnson continues to deny Jan. 6th was an armed insurrection, as Wisconsin Democrats work to make the November Election a referendum on the right to an abortion. Robert tells us the deep history and structural causes of for-profit utility foot draging on climate change, and a new Sierra Club Report gives Wisconsin utilities D and F grades on clean energy. We close with an interview of Citizen Action North Central Organizing Coop member Don Dunphy, who has been working for two and a half years for our “deep canvass” program following his retirement as the Lincoln County District Attorney. Don tells us why talking to important voters this year is “the most important job of his life” and why it is important our listeners should donate to expand the canvass and volunteer with Citizen Action talking to voters who will decide the election.
Listen to the show.
