State Dem Chair in La Crosse Tuesday

from New Direction:

Our democracy is dying, but we can help save it. We can do it one step at a time, all of us working together or as individuals to elect people who share our values. We just need the ideas and tools to do it.  One way to gain these ideas and learn about possible actions is to attend our NEW DIRECTION meeting this coming Tuesday, February 13th. Here are the details:

Our guest speaker, MARTHA LANING, Chair, Democratic Party of Wisconsin (DPW), will share the changes she has made to DPW since she became chair to (1) build the infrastructure to empower the grassroots, the Party’s greatest resource, and (2) network with other Progressive partners in the state to achieve electoral victories in 2018.  In addition to that overview, she will:

·       Share ideas on how to get involved individually and collectively with DPW and other groups who support the change we all want, and

·       Answer questions so we all are better informed on how we can work together to turn our state blue.

WHAT:  NEW DIRECTION Monthly Meeting

WHEN:  Tuesday, February 13, 2018; 7-9 pm
