A Viva Public Service Announcement:
Power to the Polls is coming to Milwaukee, WI on July 28!
Saturday, July 28, 2018
12:00 PM – 5:00 PM CDT
This is an opportunity to encourage others to participate and represent in our democracy. If you’re in the Milwaukee metro area and available, please:
- Register for this event.
- Mark your calendar.
- Show up.
- Actively participate with others in grassroots political engagement, and please …
- Be heard by being seen and have fun!
From the Power To The Polls website:
“The day will include speakers, performances, canvassing, phone and text banking, postcard writing, food trucks, fellowship and more. Additional details will be posted to the Facebook event.
“Wisconsin’s marginalized and progressive communities have been attacked by voter suppression efforts which also impacted the 2016 election results. There’s too much at stake in this election to sit on the sidelines. We have a real chance to turn things around and build a progressive majority. This year, we won special elections in Wisconsin Senate Districts 1 and 10, and we elected Rebecca Dalletto the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Voters are saying to the racist, sexist, xenophobic, ableist, and transphobic policies of the Trump administration and majority in Congress.
We can win by working to amplify the women’s narrative in the electoral space, support local grassroots leaders and elect more women and people of color to public office. The P2P tour is only going to 10 priority states and Wisconsin is one of them, be a part of the movement for victory by registering today!”
Full disclosure: I will be out-of-town during this event but I will be looking for future similar events and will post them here.
