Tuesday, November 10th, Donald Trump and the other Republican presidential candidates will hold a debate in Milwaukee. That day at 4pm, we will march from the South Side to the debate to stop them and their anti-immigrant, anti-worker policies. We will defend our families and communities!

Trump has promised to deport all 11 million+ undocumented people in this country and their US citizen ch
ildren, and the other Republican candidates have similar racist positions.

November 10th at 4pm we will march from the office of Voces de la Frontera Action (1027 S. 5th St. in Milwaukee) to City Hall (200 E. Wells St.) where we will join $Fight for $15 and Black Lives Matter protesters to march on the Republican debate, which is close by. Buses will be available.

Justice for immigrants! Fight for $15 minimum wage! Black Lives Matter! ¡Sí se puede!

Thanks to Governor Scott Walker & friends’ journey to slay democracy within our state, on Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013, Wisconsin residents will be faced with voting on a referendum to decide whether we should keep same-day voter registration or nullify it.

 

Why is same-day voter registration relevant?

 

How will eliminating same-day voter registration hurt us?

  • It will cost taxpayers up to $14.5 million to eliminate same-day voter registration in the state, which would mean that bureaucracies with endless wait lines like the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) would have to establish a system to provide registration services
  •  Ending registration at the polls suppresses the minority and working class vote through inaccessible registration hours and locations
  • Our state’s proud history of above-average civic engagement will be no more, as this push would undermine voters who do not operate on the state’s schedule
  • It is an underhanded partisan trick to tip the scale in favor of a particular party:

“Marquette’s Alumni Memorial Union hosted the top three wards with the most same-day voter registrations in Milwaukee, according to statistics from the city commission. A majority of voters who cast ballots at Marquette’s polling site registered the same day. Of those same-day registrations, 42 percent voted Republican and 58 percent Democrat, city commission data showed.

YOU decide whether we keep fair balance by keeping same-day registration in Wisconsin- VOTE April 2nd, 2013!

We know it’s not Christmas yet…

 

But we’ve been nice and never naughty, even more than ever now that we’re getting ready to begin our voter mobilization campaign on Wednesday, March 13th at 3:00 pm!!!

 

Our dear canvassers have braved the winds and the Wisconsin blizzards to knock on the doors of folks who are eligible to vote so that they may help us elect Ed Fallone to the State Supreme Court, Tatiana Joseph as School Board Director for District 6, and Tony Evers as State Superintendent!  Not only that, our heroic door-knockers are also fighting to keep same-day voter registration going!

 

Want to join the fight for Wisconsin progress?  Here’s what we need to aid our valiant warriors:

– New, unused, reusable water bottles

– Hand warmers

– Snacks (…because even our esteemed caped-crusaders need stamina)

– YOUR volunteer time!!!
