Citizen Action members on the Medicare for All train
On Saturday, June 8th, Citizen Action members traveled to Chicago to take part in a Medicare for All rally in Downtown Chicago. The gleaming office tower of Blue Cross/Blue Shield was the first target of the protesters who are tired of seeing friends and family suffer, all in the name of corporate profits. From there they marched to a nearby hotel where the AMA was holding a conference. Chants of “AMA get out of the way,” drifted up from the streets.

BadgerCare Day of Action-Metro Milwaukee Area

BadgerCare Day of Action- Eau Claire
We are less than two weeks away from our Expand BadgerCare Rally in Eau Claire! Now more than ever, it is critical we show our united support for the expansion of BadgerCare. The leaders of our state legislature have vowed to block any and all attempts to honor the will of the people. The only thing they will understand is a vast, unified response.
In that spirit, I ask you to join Citizen Action for our Expand BadgerCare Rally outside the federal courthouse in Eau Claire on June 24th at 10 AM!
This is an amazing opportunity to take action and show our elected officials what the benefits of expanding BadgerCare mean to the people of Wisconsin:
- Offering affordable, quality care to 80,000 working class Wisconsinites,
- Bringing back millions of our federal tax dollars for investments in our community,
- Freeing up room in the budget to properly fund our schools.
Thank you for your continued leadership and determination in this fight! I look forward to seeing on June 24th. If you have questions or would like to attend, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Northwest Co-Op celebrates Pride!!
(Member Joe Luginbil addresses chippewa valley pride)
(Member Barb Wise and son Noah Wise meet Lt. Governor Barnes at Milwaukee Pride)
This week we do a deep dive with State Senator Chris Larson on the GOP budget endgame. Does Robin Vos really expect Governor Evers to capitulate to their short sighted and immoral budget, or does he have a hidden agenda in mind? Next we welcome State Treasurer Sarah Godlewski to discuss the fiscal insanity of the GOP budget that is taking shape, and her work to address the student debt crisis. Finally, we dig into the latest Foxconn low lights, and progress on Medicare for All.
