Citizen Action North Side Rising Organizing Cooperative Walks the Walk!

Citizen Action North Side Rising is a power building organization. We know that in order to create a world where health care and housing are not a worry, water and air are safe, the earth is protected and wages are livable, WE HAVE TO WORK!!

Pictured, North Side Rising member Andre Brown talks to a man and finds out that he is a contractor interested in our Green Jobs work and offering training. And the guy in the pink hoodie? He works with youth and is interested in joining our work with MPS.

We offset corporate greed with numbers. Regular ole folk struggling to afford and access the healthcare they need. Regular folks struggling with energy bills. Regular folks whose water is poisoned by lead or PFAS. Regular working folks who work hard but can’t get ahead while a segment of our population has EVERYTHING at their disposal.

We build power by finding like minded folks who are fed up with this “stuff” and are willing to take step by step action against it. How many doors will you knock on? How many phone calls will you make? How many blocks will you walk? How many texts will you send? Will you get information in your church bulletin? How many conversations are you willing to have to build this power?

Get involved with North Side Rising, contact Valerie Ricks at: [email protected]

Listen to “Fighting Hospital Costs and Closures” Battleground Wisconsin Podcast

We review the launch of a new statewide campaign for Hospital and Health system accountability. Big hospital chains have used their lobbying and political clout to excuse themselves from public oversight, with disastrous results for patients and communities. In their ceaseless quest for revenue, thy have made health care unaffordable, and created an unstable system which is leading to closures and the elimination of critical services across the state. We will discuss new legislation being drafted by State Senator Jeff Smith to reassert public oversight over the hospital industry.

Listen to the show.
