21st Century WI Political Reform Chautauqua @ Dunn County Historical Society
Sep 7 – Sep 8 all-day

Wisconsin United to Amend is proud to host the first 21st Century Political Reform Chautauqua – and you are invited.

This is a statewide event for folks who understand that our Republic is lost to the big money that controls our elections and a majority of our politicians.

Click here to learn more

We The People have to Restore our Republic from this corrupt, big-money political system.

On September 7th and 8th, 2019, we will hold the Chautauqua at the Dunn County Historical Society, in Menomonie Wisconsin. We hope this will be in the nature of the many Chautauquas around the nation in the 1800s and early 1900s – held to educate citizen about political conditions and actions needed – before the time of mass communications.

We will have presentations by leaders of organizations that are currently involved in building the movement needed to create reforms necessary to Restore our Republic. But it won’t all be business – we will have good food, entertainment, and opportunities for you do network with Wisconsin’s busy reformers.

Wisconsin is currently leading the nation in building the political reform movement. And we are determined to Restore our Republic from the dysfunctional political system that has stolen it. This is your chance to become part of history – much like Wisconsin is well known for its prowess for the Gilded Age reform movement lead by Fighting Bob Lafollette. Wisconsin can, nay must, lead the nation again.

Will you become part of this historic event? We need you to both join us at the event, and then to become active reformers who will move Wisconsin, and the nation, to have politicians who once again represent We the People. See you there!

Let’s Fix This!

Polk County (WI) Democratic Party

One of the people representing WI on the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is an Eau Claire City Councilman who grew up in Polk County on the Community Homestead Farm. You can trust he and others are working to make the DNC reflective of the beliefs of average Democratic Party members, young people, and others.I'm happy to be in San Francisco at the Democratic National Committee meeting fighting to make sure the Climate Crisis is front and center in the 2020 Presidential race!

As one of seven DNC Members elected from Wisconsin to the National Democratic Party, I am honored to have the opportunity to vote this weekend on a Resolution that would make sure that one of the Democratic Presidential debates is focused on the issues of climate change. It is too important of an issue not to have its own focus and to hear solutions from Presidential candidates that actually match the severity of the challenge we face. Climate change causes sever weather events like flooding, hurricanes and wildfires which cost our country billions. It impacts our water quality and causes algae blooms and fish kills. It causes more incidents of lymes disease and vector borne illnesses that put people's lives in danger. And it pushes people from their homes and jobs while taxing our nations already crumbling infrastructure. It has racial, socioeconomic, environmental and national security implications that demand our leadership and action.

I have heard from those impacted across our state and nation saying that this needs to be a priority form whomever become our next President, that we need to act for the sake of our country and our world, and it is because of your advocacy and my own conviction that I will be voting YES for a Democratic Presidential Debate that focuses soley on the Climate Crisis.
