Attend Citizen Action 3rd CD Candidate Forum, Sunday, December 17th, 6pm!
Join us for a virtual candidate forum featuring candidates challenging Derrick Van Orden for the 3rd Congressional District in Western Wisconsin. The forum will feature questions from Citizen Action Organizing coop members who live in the 3rd Congressional District. Citizen Action has 3 separate Organizing Co-ops located in the district, making this a huge event for us!
This forum is part of our endorsement process and will include a survey of attendees on their candidate preferences and if you think Citizen Action’s Board should vote to endorse in the Democratic Primary. All final endorsement decisions are made by our Board, but member opinions matter very much in that decision.
Citizen Action Northeast Organizing Coop’s Update: BadgerCare Public Option House Party was a success!
The Northeast co-op hosted a BadgerCare Public Option house party with Kristina Shelton at the Green Bay Labor Temple this week and it was a great event! We had a small group of passionate folks who contributed to a great discussion about the BadgerCare Public Option bill, as well as what steps we can take to push the bill forward. We concluded the event with a social at the bar next door, where we continued the healthcare conversation over drinks. It was a great opportunity for folks to connect through and organize around healthcare, which is something that touches all of our lives!
The Northeast Co-op also hosted a Green Bay climate action meeting on Wednesday, in which we prepared to support Green Bay’s Clean Energy Plan at the Common Council meeting next week.
This local piece of climate legislation sets Green Bay on the path to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. We know how important it is for local
municipalities to take part in the fight against climate change.
Want to support the Clean Energy Plan? Join us to testify at the Green Bay Common Council meeting next week Tuesday, December 5th at 6:00pm at Green Bay City Hall.
